FRANCESCO BOSCHIS DOGLIANI DOLCETTORating: 90
In the sleepy little township of Dogliani (located a few kilometers south of Barolo), Dolcetto is king. The Boschis family has been producing Dolcetto and Barbera wines on their family property since 1919. They embody the spirit of being farmers and have great pride in their singular wines which express the terroir of Dogliani and raise the bar for the Dolcetto grape. Dolcetto produces soft-styled, fruity wines with colors varying from deep ruby to purple. They are characterized particularly by their low acidity, which is the source of the variety's name; Dolcetto means "little sweet one". The Dolcetto 'Pianezzo' is a blend from different plots and produces a young, fresh and classic expression of Dogliani. Pair this with Piemontese-inspired menus such as risotto with truffles, meat and sage stuffed ravioli, all kinds of salumi and cured meats, beef and veal dishes as well as fine Italian cheeses. "If I had to name one superstar under the radar estate in Piedmont it might very well be Francesco Boschis. The wines are intense, delicious and reliably outstanding. Even better, because Boschis is based in Dogliani and works predominantly with Dolcetto, prices remain remarkably fair for this level of quality." Antonio Galloni Vinous "Every time I taste the Francesco Boschis's wines, I can't believe how this estate manages to remain so far under the radar. Once again, Boschis has turned out a superb set of wines loaded with personality. I can't recommend these wines highly enough." Wine Advocate
