Vallana is an ultra-traditional producer of fine Nebbiolos making wines from various DOCs and DOCGs in Alto Piemonte. Boca is a microscopic DOC 15 hectares in total which is required to be a blend of Nebbiolo with Vespolina and/or Uva Rara, both traditional varieties of this part of Piedmont. The Vespolina in this wine adds a spicy dimension, notes of white paper and clove to support the black fruit of the Nebbiolo. The wine has classic structure with rich tannins, which with some years in bottle it has mellowed and gained in complexity. It is perfectly drinkable now, but Vallana's wines have a reputation for being very long keepers, I would expect this to be drink well, way past its 10th birthday.
