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. As local as local gets, Carlone - who has never been on a plane - has held tight to the tales of times past. Crafting natural wines, Carlone has been the guiding light of Boca, offering advice and growing for others while the appellation slowly gained traction. Medium bodied earthy red from the Alto-Piemonte. Notes of tobacco, anise, and plenty of plummy fruity. The tannins are more gentle on the palate than you’d imagine from the nose.
