The Case For Wine presents a cru Barolo from a famous vineyard.

Mr. Bovio, proprietor, looks at the view from Ristorante Belvedere in La Morra, Piedmont, Italy. The Belvedere is highly respected for serving local cusine.

Location is everything in the hills of Barolo – Gianfranco Bovio crafts delicious Cru Barolo from the Gattera vineyard in La Morra. The Bovio wines come loaded with rich, generous Nebbiolo fruit, and a pure crystalline silky texture. Traditional treatment in the cellar—fermentation with native yeast and long aging in Slavonian oak casks keep the process delightfully old school.

2013 Bovio Barolo Gattera $68.95 per bottle – six packs

Aromas of roses, cedar and cherries follow through to a full body. Firm and silky tannins and a juicy finish. Turns smoky and meaty at the finish. Drink or hold.

A note on the excellent 2013 vintage in Barolo: “A cool growing season and late harvest produced gorgeous Barolos with striking aromatics, silky tannins, sculpted, vibrant fruit and mid-weight structures. Readers will find a number of thrilling, utterly captivating wines that speak to the pedigree and class that are the signatures of the best Barolo vintages” – Vinous Media

The Gattera Vineyard

Gattera, named for an enormous cedar that crowns its summit at about 300 meters, has a south to southwest alignment and produces a brooding, savoury style of Barolo, perfumed, finessed, almost Burgundian-like in their vivid cherry fruit expression.
