Named after Carlone's grandmother and niece, 'Adele' is sourced from and made in the same fashion as the Boca bottling. Carlone has a wealth of Nebbiolo biotypes throughout his vineyards, this Picotener Nebbiolo biotype dominates this bottling and amplifies the finesse and elegance already present in the Boca flagship bottle.
Notes from T Edward Wines:
"In his late teens, Davide Carlone (born 1968) worked a 1ha, old-vine Boca vineyard that was one of only three hectares still in existence. In this tiny appellation that once flourished, little remains of the once prolific vineyards that thrived pre-phylloxera.
Crafting natural wines, Carlone has been the guiding light of Boca, offering advice and growing for others while the appellation slowly gained traction. Today, he keeps a bit more of his grapes and finished wines for himself. This Boca spends nearly four years in cask with minimal racking. Nebbiolo has a unique expression when grown in Boca, in part because the soils and bedrock are primarily volcanic porphyry, which is an appellation specific trait because the hills of Boca are the remnant of a once active volcano."
