DOGLIANI DOCG PIANEZZO 2011
Pianezzo is the classical wine of the estate. It is made from the grapes grown on the hill where the homestead is located and it is also the highest hill on the property. It is made from various small vineyards and it reflects the main characteristics of the soil and of the climate.
The exposure of the vineyards is south-east/south-west. The soil is calcareous and the age of the vines varies from 7 to 35 years. Although all the vineyards of the estate stand on the Pianezzo hill, only this particular wine bears this name as it was the first one to be bottled in 1968 (the grapes were previously sold). The other wines were bottled in the following years.
The Boschis family tries to maintain the characteristics of the Dolcetto varietal in this wine: it is fresh due to its good acidity (the zone is high). The nose is reminiscent of cherries, strawberries and raspberries. It matures for 11 months in stainless steel tanks as stainless steel does not alter the distinctive qualities of the variety and of the zone. One should not drink this wine on its own, but it should be poured together with food. It is extremely versatile, it is a perfect match for many different dishes, appetizers, white meat dishes, vegetables, rice and pasta dishes. In fact it won many awards due to its excellent quality/price ratio.
