The peculiar growing season of 2011 – a relatively cooler spring and summer, then torridly hot from early August thru the end of the harvest – gave textbook examples of warm-season Nebbiolo character.
The nose is seductive, very fruit forward with great floral and licorice notes. On the palate it is voluptuous and seductive, with long, sweet red fruit, fine tannins and beautiful balanced freshness. As the wine opens, balsamic and spice notes emerge.
There are plenty of ripe, soft tannins and subtle hints of wood. The finish is long and clean. This is a Cannubi Boschis to enjoy relatively young, though a few more years in the bottle will not hurt.
