Boschis Barbera ripples with that succulent acidity that is the hallmark of the variety, guiding a flood of brambley summer fruits across the palate in a cascade of lip-smacking pleasure. Drink any time of the year, the super soft tannins enable this to take the lightest of chills to highlight its vivacious beauty.
This is Barbera from Alba and comes with more richness and intensity than the Langhe Barbera, and is given a little more time on skins during fermentation and then takes to oak (20% new) for maturation. This is darker toned than the Langhe, with a little more tannin but the extra year of ageing in the winery makes this a dark, sumptuous feast of a wine.
Â 'Every time I taste the Francesco Boschisâ€™s wines, I canâ€™t believe how this estate manages to remain so far under the radar. Once again, Boschis has turned out a superb set of wines loaded with personality. I canâ€™t recommend these wines highly enough.'Â Wine Advocate
