Cantina Boffa 2014 Barbera Alba Buschet DOCG
Cantina Boffa is a small specialised vineyard of only 4 hectares, as such production levels are extremely small, enabling quality above all else, with a focus on extracting the best from the least. The application of modern technology supports a traditional approach to showcasing, Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto d'Alba.
The attention to hand picking and sorting for this wine was paramount, after traditional fermentation in stainless steel vats the wine was carefully placed into oak for ageing for a period of 12 months. As a result the liveliness and sincerity of the vineyard shines through. The nose offers confected dark cherry, cloves and vanilla bean and there is a gentleness to the tannins, they greet you like old friends and happily sing along with the purity and classiness of the fruit. We like this wine.

We do love this wine and feel it should be matched with something that accompanies it but also allows for expression, we make lamb meatballs with saffron tomatoes and truffled mash. Heart warming, simple and most importantly showcases the Barbera's beautiful character.
