Barolo DOCG Jlsorj 2017 - Gomba Boschetti

Barolo DOCG "Jlsorj" comes from the grapes of a single vineyard. We are in the commune of Barolo, and the vineyard is the most suitable one, right on top of the Boschetti hill. We are about 320 metres above sea level, with a perfect south/south-west exposure. Here the sun shines generously on the bunches of grapes that grow on plants over 10 years old, and the soil, clayey with marl and limestone of the Tortonian era, contributes to the creation of wines that are recognisable for their finesse, intensity of aroma and softness. The harvest, as it is right when we talk about high level wines, is strictly manual with a careful selection of the bunches directly on the plant. Vinification begins with a soft pressing and destemming, followed by fermentation at a controlled temperature with maceration on the skins for 9-10 days. Ageing, on the other hand, begins with a period of almost two years in oak casks, followed by a further 12 months in the bottle. Ruby red in colour with garnet highlights, evolving with ageing, the nose offers ethereal and intense aromas. Notes of ripe fruit with hints of rose and blackberry, to which hints of liquorice and spices are added as it evolves. In the mouth it is structured and elegant. It recalls the olfactory sensations with a spicy mineral aftertaste. To uncork and serve in combination with large roast meat and game. Dishes with truffles, mature hard cheeses.

This time we are in a simply magical place. Cascina Boschetti, in fact, is located on the top of the hill of the same name that overlooks the roofs of the houses of Barolo and the castle of the Marchesi Falletti where, just so we don't forget, the wine of kings saw the light. From the farm there is a breathtaking 360° view of the Langa hills and the many castles that dot them. The Gomba family has owned this farmhouse since 1991, when Sergio, the fifth generation of a historic Piedmontese family, bought it in the summer, just in time for his first harvest a few months later. At the time, the property comprised just one hectare of land and the grapes were vinified in a cellar in La Morra. The first bottles, however, already had the logo of the farmhouse on the label: a house on the hill with three trees and the design of the rows. And they have not changed since then. In 1998 the hectares became 11, while in 2003 the project to build a new winery and bottling area began. And although in 2005 the number of hectares under vine had risen to around 20, Sergio Gomba was still not fully satisfied. He decided to buy another 4 hectares, this time in the Roero region, to produce the other typical varieties of the region. Today Sergio Gomba produces almost 200,000 bottles a year, of which at least 90,000 are Barolo. But at Cascina Boschetti they always keep their feet firmly on the ground, in full respect of the Piedmontese motto: "Esageruma nen", let's not exaggerate.
