Drink now through to 2036. Decant 1 hour before serving.

Bovio specialises in small production Barolos which are made in a traditional style with plenty of elegance and freshness. The estate’s modern history dates back to the 1970s when the famous local restaurateur Gianfranco Bovio set to work to revitalise his father’s estate. Over the years he added another seven hectares of top vineyards to the estate, bringing the total to 10 hectares on the prized La Morra slopes of Arborina, Gattera, and Rocchettevino.

Today the estate is run by the third generation of Bovios, Alessandra and her husband, Marco Boschiazzo. Their Arborina is a great example of a classic Barolo made according to typical local winemaking techniques like long maturations in large Slavonian oak casks. The fruit is fermented in stainless steel tanks for 15 days followed by another 30-40 days maceration on the skins. The young wine is then aged in used barrels for 24 months followed by six months in concrete tanks and another six months in the bottle before release.

The result is a powerful but refined Barolo with ample dark fruit aromas and hints of tobacco, sweet spice and leather. The palate reveals a robust structure, firm tannins and bright streak of acidity which helps to balance out the intensity of the flavour profile.
