Ruby-red in color, this Barbera shows ample red fruit on the nose. It has silky tannins that give it a smooth mouthfeel. This “easy-to-drink” wine has a freshness and approachability that make it a great wine for the casual wine consumer. 

The first product of the winery’s organic viticulture program. The Barbera grapes for this wine come from vineyards located in Bionzo, a very important and small vineyard in Costigliole d’Asti at 200 –300 feet above sea level. The average age of the vines is 25 years, and they are grown on southeast and southwest facings in calcareous clay soil. After harvesting, the grapes are pressed, and the must is fermented in temperature-controlled steel tanks. Skin maceration takes place over six days, assuring good color and body. The 2020 vintage began with no particular issues in winter, when temperatures were mild, and precipitations and snowfalls were few and far between. Growth was constant rather than exponential, so the grapes reached technological maturation – in other words optimal sugar levels – between the end of September and early October. The 2020 vintage can be said to be extremely good with points of excellence, especially for the medium-long aging wines.

This wine is a perfect accompaniment both red and white meats like chicken and pork, as well as an array of Italian cheeses, pastas and risotto.

Raised among the vines in the Langhe region of Piedmont, 3rd generation winemaker Luca Bosio inherited “native intelligence” and natural ability for farming from his parents and grandparents. His talent for growing grapes was uncanny, so he did what any aspiring grape grower would do: he enrolled in the enology program at the famed University of Turin. That proved to be a fruitful endeavor as Luca gained valuable information on new technological advancements in the world of wine, like using native yeasts and how to make a viable wine with less sulfur inclusion and other chemical additives. His schooling was also the impetus that prompted him to theorize around the best ways to preserve aroma and structure.

Luca continued with his academics, eventually earning a master’s degree in enology, always finding new, innovative ways to make his family’s wine better.

The family’s winery, Bosio, was renamed to the Luca Bosio Vineyards. Under Luca’s purview, the vineyard holdings have increased to 1,000 acres in Piedmont and surrounding areas, including the purchase of the highly regarded Bel Colle Winery and vineyards, which has solidified Luca’s position as an outstanding maker of fine Piedmontese wine.
