2021 Boschis Francesco Grignolino
The history of the Azienda began in 1919 when Telesforo Boschis moved from the vineyards of Barolo to the hill of Pianezzo, in Dogliani. After few days borned his son Francesco. Telesforo here continued his work planting new vineyards. It was in 1968 that Francesco and his son Mario started to vinify a part of the grapes, producing a few hundred bottles af the wine now we know as “Pianezzo”. The experience achieved permit to make the most of the natural characteristic different vines and soils have, and their exposure to the sun gives.
For this reason they started to vinify separately the grapes of some vineyards obtaining in 1983 the “Vigna dei Prey”, in 1986 the “Sorì San Martino” and in 2001 the “Vigna del Ciliegio”. Vineyards are planted in the azienda’s most suited areas, but there are also hazelnuts, fields and meadows.
The wines are unfiltered and the traditional vinification can involve in bottles a perfectly natural presence of sediments. Mario and Simona run the estate with their sons Paolo and Marco. Our labels are all designed by Teresita Terreno except the one of “Vigna del Ciliegio” which is Mali’s (Marianne) opera.
