Castello Conti 'Il Rosso delle Donne' Boca DOC 2015
This product is currently sold out.
This wine is the pinnacle of the Conti sisters' work up until this point (Elena took over duties from her father Ermanno in 2003). What a wine - simultaneously open and generous but with layers of fine detail to marvel at. A super fine web of acidity adds significant structure that guarantees a very, very long future. Baskets full of cool red forest fruits are found, sour cherries and a freshness (there is no forced extraction here) that is irresistible. It drinks marvellously now and will continue to do so over it's lifespan - cellar confidently, or don't. Alpine bliss.
"2015 Boca Il Rosso delle Donne is striking. Deep, rich and beautifully layered, yet also light on its feet, the Rosso delle Donne shows how much of what makes Boca so appealing. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, rose petal, lavender and spice are all laced together. The 2015 is pliant and supple, with impeccable balance, all in a mid-weight, translucent style that is wonderfully enticing." Antonio Galloni, Vinous
