The Boca DOC Vigna Cristiana is characterised by its intense and brilliant garnet red colour, which matures towards orange with age. Elegant and refined on the nose with notes of flowers and spices accompanied by berries, the taste is rich and complex in its austerity, made unique by the presence of noble tannins of the vines and soils. This harmony creates a distinct personality. Luigi Veronelli described it as: "a serious, gritty wine with a persistent verve; full-bodied with a strong character".
The Boca DOC Vigna Cristiana is present in the wine bank promoted and managed by Slow Food in Pollenzo.
The same utmost care can be found in the management of the vineyard, the working of the soil and the manual pruning of the vines. Preference is given to organic farming methods and the grapes are thinned out from the start of ripening. Each vintage of Boca Vigna Cristiana differs from the others because it expresses and transmits the climatic characteristics of the months when the vines were in bloom and the grapes were ripening.
The Boca wine goes perfectly with rich pasta and rice dishes, such as risotto with Toma della Valsesia and with braised or roasted meat and game. It also pairs beautifully with Novara's cured meats (Duja and Fidighina) and with cheeses from our valley and plain, such as the Valsesian toma and the classic Gorgonzola.
