La Ca' Nova

Montestefano Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2017

Color of burgundy with a slight purple hue. Quite clear. Nose of nice dried strawberry, beautiful aldehyde, nice savory herb, oily paint, and strength of alcohol. Nose is beautiful and well refined. Taste follows the nose with addition of zest, slight sweetness, warmth of alcohol, and mellow tannins. Well balanced and tasty. Aftertaste is long and savory. Beautiful. — 3 days ago

Riserva Rio Sordo Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2013

Rated as the “lesser” cru of 2013 but started phenomenally, beautiful aromatic nose and juicy taste with the typical Barbaresco flavours. But after a 4 hour decant VA pops up, initially ok but kept on increasing untill it became a glass of nail polisher. Dissappointing and interesting at the same time. Luckily only with the last glass... — 13 days ago

Sadly, Mr. Boffa passed away in mid-April after a two week battle with Covid. He was 66 years old.
Everyone please have a toast and a prayer for him and his family.
