About the wine

Tasting notes

An elegant, brooding and ethereal Nebbiolo with a real Pinosity to it. Meaty and Earthy flavours mingle with blood orange, dark cherry and roses with deep minerality and purity. If you like Mascarello's Monprivato, you're going to love this too!

Expert review

The 2018 Boca is an ethereal wine. Seet red cherry fruit, blood orange, sage, mint and dried flowers all grace this mid-weight expressive Boca. The 2018 is exotic, beguiling and full of character.

The Grape

Nebbiolo

Often referred to as the king of red grapes, Nebbiolo is responsible for some of the greatest wines in the world. The regions of Barbaresco and Barolo, in Piedmont, Italy, create the most revered expressions of the variety and have set the benchmarks for the world over. Nebbiolo is quite light in colour, dry and delicate but packs a punch in aroma and flavour with notes of rose, tar, cherry, red berries, blood orange, licorice, leather, terracotta and earthy herbals. These wines have high acidity and high tannins, making them extremely age worthy that deepen in complexity over decades. Simply stunning wines!
