"Tar, licorice, incense, melted road tar, savory herbs and plums are some of the many notes that flow from the 2010 Dogliani Sori San Martino.

"Tar, licorice, incense, melted road tar, savory herbs and plums are some of the many notes that flow from the 2010 Dogliani Sori San Martino. Although quite dark and brooding in its flavor profile, the San Martino is actually quite medium-bodied and refined, with endless layers of expressive, deeply perfumed fruit that caress the palate from start to finish.

Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016." ~AG

Francesco Boschis VineyardsIn the little-visited township of Dogliani (located a few kilometers south of Barolo), Dolcetto is king. Nebbiolo is not suited to the terrain, and few choose the challenge of making a living from Dolcetto and Barbera alone. The Boschis family has been producing wine on their family property since 1919, but only began bottling their own juice in 1968. Plantings are at 550 meters, about 200-300 meters higher than those in Barolo and Barbaresco, resulting in a powerfully enhanced bouquet; old vines (40-60 years) result in richly complex and ageworthy wines.
