Antonio Vallana Boca 2013 75cl
The wine has rich silky tannins, with those cherry and damson stone aromas that you'd expect from Nebbiolo. These wines can age (Vallana's especially) so while you can enjoy this now, it will keep giving for at least andother decade.
The name itself Antonio Vallana e Figlio evokes the family’s long and honourable history, based in the heart of the region, in Maggiora and their website proudly proclaims 5 generations in wine. The fifth and current generation is represented by Marina and Francis Fogarty, sister and brother, who have fully taken charge of the winemaking and running of the family estate over the last 10 years. Marina describes things as “in one way nothing has changed, and we are very faithful to our legacy of traditional wines from the region” for which they have many long-standing customers. However, they are both keen to see a progression and combine modernity with tradition.
