The history of the Azienda began in 1919 when Telesforo Boschis moved from the vineyards of Barolo to the hill of Pianezzo, in Dogliani. After a few days, his son Francesco was born. Telesforo here continued his work planting new vineyards. It was in 1968 that Francesco and his son Mario started to vinify a part of the grapes, producing a few hundred bottles of the wine now we know as “Pianezzo”. The experience achieved permits us to make the most of the natural characteristics different vines and soils have, and their exposure to the sun gives.
For this reason, they started to vinify separately the grapes of some vineyards obtaining in 1983 the “Vigna dei Prey”, in 1986 the “Sorì San Martino” and in 2001 the “Vigna del Ciliegio”. Vineyards are planted in the azienda’s most suited areas, but there are also hazelnuts, fields and meadows.
We produce different kinds of grapes: Dolcetto (80% of the total productions), our area has a perfect climate condition for this variety, Barbera, Freisa, Grignolino and Sauvignon Blanc. We believe in the respect of nature, for this, we follow the lines given by the European Union Program for eco-compatible Agriculture (Misura Agroambientale 214.1). We reduce pesticide treatments and we don’t use fertilizer but natural mature produced in our little stable.
The wines are unfiltered and the traditional vinification can involve in bottles a perfectly natural presence of sediments. Mario and Simona run the estate with their sons Paolo and Marco. Our labels are all designed by Teresita Terreno except the one of “Vigna del Ciliegio” which is Mali’s (Marianne) opera.
Tasting Notes: Light ruby. Pepper, geranium, mown grass. Medium structure with evident tannins and good length.
Pairing: Appetizers, white meats, but also well-seasoned fish
