Difficult year with a lot of rain in spring, followed by a hot August and nice September which matured the grape well. Harvest was compromised by some rains but with selection we could do small amounts of Boca of very high quality, full of elegance and very fine and complex. It reminds us the outstanding vintage 2008 with big structure, power and deep and complex aromatics. This wine should sit in the cellar for long years and in the official market, we only will release it in 2019.

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.
