Boca

Boca, Antonio Vallana

Boca is a hidden jewel! If Gattinara is the King, Boca is the Queen. The best words to describe this wine are elegant, finessed and delicate. This is a true example that beauty in youth and elegance in age are not mutually exclusive. The Boca appellation is located near Ghemme and Gattinara in the Alto Piemonte.

  • Nebbiolo, (65%), Vespolina (20%) and Uva Rara (15%)
  • Nebbiolo confers the structure and the aromatic background; Vespolina adds a fresh, floral quality, and Uva Rara brings a round, silky texture
  • Each variety is harvested and fermented separately
  • Hand-harvested
  • Fermentation in cement tank with pumping over
  • Blended and aged in 10 HL casksĀ  for two years
  • Boca must age at least 4 years before release and Vallana goes further to age their wines longer, seeking the optimal time to release their wine
