Irresistible, to say the least. The nose showed ripe strawberry, hints of wild herbs, crushed stone minerality, smoke, and pine nettle. On the palate, I found silky yet lifted textures with an elegant gleam of brilliant red fruits, minerals and inner floral tones. It finished elegant, finessed and remarkably pretty with lingering strawberry and hints of fine tannin.

Nebbiolo & Vespolina. A full, rich expression of red fruit, dark fruit, flowers, & chocolate. I haven't seen Boca in Chicago.

Paired with wagyu beef and smoked kale. At first glance I was worried that it would be overwhelmed by the good; I was wrong. Medium-bodied with berries offset with nice tannins. Sommelier pronounced this wine hard to find; it is worth a search!
