"Chiara Boschis made some of the most thrilling wines of the vintage. “For me, 2019 opens a new cycle of growing seasons, all marked by intense heat in the summer,” she told me. The 2019s saw two weeks on the skins, followed by malolactic fermentation in steel. “It is important to me to vinify all the lots the same way so that what comes through is the personality of each site. We do a few pumpovers daily and gently turn the rotary tanks.” The wines were racked into oak between December and January and then raised with no racking. Wines from Barolo and Serralunga are aged in casks, while those from Monforte are raised in smaller French oak casks. In recent years, Chiara Boschis has been at the top. Her 2019s are positively stellar.
"97 Points. The 2019 Barolo Via Nuova is another gorgeous wine in this tasting. Soaring and broad in its aromatic intensity, the 2019 has it all. The blend of seven sites works so well. Readers will find a seamless, wonderfully complete Barolo. Dried flowers, herbs, mint, rose petal, kirsch and orange zest lend notable complexity throughout. The 2019 is deep and also quite rich, but not at all heavy. There is a touch of oak sweetness, but it just adds to the wine's exotic beauty.
"98 points. The 2019 Barolo Mosconi is the most potent of the three Barolos in the range. It exudes Monforte darkness and virile intensity from the very first taste. Black cherry, plum, mocha, sage, tar, lavender and spice infuse the 2019 with tons of character. This is one of
the most elegant wines I have ever tasted from Mosconi, a site that does not naturally lend itself to finesse.”
"97 points. The 2019 Barolo Cannubi is flat-out stunning. Rich and beautifully textured, the 2019 dazzles from start to finish. Freshly cut flowers, mint, crushed red berry fruit, orange peel, salt and dried herbs are some of the many notes that grace this exquisite, wonderfully nuanced Barolo from Chiara Boschis. Sweet floral and spice overtones build into the finish. The precision here is unreal. Aging in cask works so well here. What a wine!”
