“Mimmo” is dedicated to a friend from Boca who collaborated with the company for many years to improve the quality standards in the vineyards. The wine can be defined as a “Little Boca”. Less structured and riper parts of “Boca DOC” (Nebbiolo and Vepsolina grapes) are blended after 2 years of aging in large barrels together with riper Croatina grapes (30%) to produce a light wine which is more amenable than “Boca DOC” and functions as good door-opener to the more complex but also more demanding flagship wine “Boca DOC”. There is a nice floral and fruity flavor with a soft elegance and long-lasting taste. “Mimmo” does not need to age for long but matures well over a period of 3 to 6 years.
Nebbiolo is fermented for 30 days on the must in little stainless steel tanks by pushing the must down by hand. Aging in big barrels of Slavonian oak (28hl) for two years, Croatina and Vespolina require short fermentation (5 days) in open wooden barrels pushing down the must by hand. Aging one year in Tonneaux from Troncais and one year in big wooden barrel of Slavonic oak (28hl).
Foodpairing: With the great perfumes and elegance of Nebbiolo this wine goes well with a lot of dishes, especially with white meat, pasta, antipasti of vegetables and also fish made in Mediterranean way.
