Le Piane Boca 2013
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Boca|
Concerned about the cool conditions of the growing season (which saw a lot of rain throughout the spring and summer months), Christoph Künzli worried that he would be forced to skip over this vintage. Thankfully, the 2013 Boca was made, and it most certainly delivers the goods. The latter part of the growing season-and the most critical-saw sunshine and heat, leading to a late harvest with fruit ripening on the vines until October 23rd. This blend of Nebbiolo and Vespolina shows beautiful balance and delineation, with bright fruit and crisp freshness that will serve the wine well as it ages forward in time. This vintage also delivers a sound sense of inner power that pushes it elegantly over the palate.
