La Boca owes its distinctiveness to the moraine soil from Monte Rosa, made up of granite pebbles, porphyry and flakes of dolomite rock from Monte Fenera. The northern currents from Monte Rosa produce powerful temperature variations during the day. Monte Fenera creates a natural shelter and favours mild winters, temperate springs and summers and warm, sunny autumns leading to optimal ripening.
It comes from Nebbiolo (in this area better known as Spanna) and Vespolina (a grape with an aromatic and elegant profile). The name Boca refers to the area in the Novara area historically suited to viticulture since Roman times so much so that, in the 1940s, the territory was a single expanse of vines.
It is a rather difficult variety to cultivate that finds its natural habitat in the microclimate of the Novara area. It has been considered DOC since 1969.
After harvesting, the grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and then macerated for about 25 days.
It is then aged 34 months, at least 18 of which in oak barrels.
The colour is red with garnet reflections. It has a fine, ethereal bouquet and an elegant, savoury, dry, harmonious and pleasantly tannic flavour.
It is a wine particularly suitable for ageing.
Wine from organic farming! In fact, no pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers are used, which can be harmful to the environment and our health.
Foodpairing: traditional country food such as cooked salami, stuffed meat, the Tapulone (typical dish of our region based on minced donkey), polenta and Gorgonzola (obviously).
