Boca Vigna Cristiana 2011 Podere ai Valloni
It boasts a major concentration and explosive power of aromas, of flowers, red fruits and citrus fruit, pomegranate, red orange and peppery spice, on a strong body with complex texture. As in all Boca wines, the acidity ensures drinkability to the point that the first sips do not last long and quickly make room for the following ones. In the finish, cocoa, tobacco and leather dominate. Perhaps less elegant than 2010, but in any case equally fantastic!
