Dogliani Superiore DOCG “Vigna dei Prey” 2016 – Francesco Boschis
Very concentrated colour, aromas of dark fruit including prune and blackberry, very mineral. Rich in the mouth and very full of tannin, a characteristic that makes it rather long-lived.
The Dogliani Vigna del Prey Boschis is made of 100% of Dolcetto grapes from the single vineyard Dei Prey predominately calcareous tending to cleyey soil. The vineyard is located 500 meters a.s.l. facing South-West. The Dogliani Vigna del Prey Boschis is traditionally fermented in red for 6 days, with numerous pump over and at least 2 delestage in the period. The wine is matured in steel until September following the harvest with the old moon bottling.
The history of the Azienda began in 1919 when Telesforo Boschis moved from the vineyards of Barolo to the hill of Pianezzo, in Dogliani. After a few days born his son Francesco. Telesforo continues his work planting new vineyards. It was in 1968 that Francesco and his son Mario started to make a part of the grapes, producing a few hundred bottles of the wine now known as ” Pianezzo “. The experience has been made to permit most of the natural characteristics of different vines and soils, and their exposure to the sun gives. For this reason, they started to produce the grapes of some vineyards in 1983 the ” Vigna dei Prey “, in 1986 the ” Sorì San Martino ” and in 2001 the ” Vigna del Ciliegio“. Vineyards are planted in the azienda’s most suited areas, but there are hazelnuts, fields and meadows. We produce different kinds of grapes: Dolcetto(80% of the total productions), our area has a perfect climate condition for this variety, Barbera, Freisa, Grignolino and Sauvignon Blanc.
