Luca Bosio Barbera d’Alba ‘Egidio’
We have spent a lot of time seeking out a range of wines from Piemonte that delivers this kind of value for money – we have always believed a good Barolo does not need to cost $200+ if you know where to look, but we are happy to let you be the judge. The Bosio winery is located in the heart of the premium Langhe district and is now run by third generation Luca (though father Valter is never far away – meeting these guys is a little like something out of a 70s mafia movie!). The wines are elegant and expressive – classic Piemonte, and not a fugazi in sight…
This is a rich and smooth Barbera – perfect for full-bodied Shiraz lovers. The wine is dedicatd to Egidio, founder of Bosio Winery, Luca’s Grandfather and the man who blazed the trail for the generations of Bosios to follow. It is a wine full of character, with layers of rich dark fruit and chocolate notes, with silky tannins, well-integrated oak and the smoothest of finishes. Best enjoyed with a perfectly cooked steak.
