Nicoletta Boca's father was a Partisan in the Langhe hills during WWII and, after the war, would revisit the region annually to instil in his children a love for nature and a respect for culture and history. Integral to these trips was the appreciation of the local food and wine. Nicoletta hails from Milan, but so rich were these childhood memories that, in 1992, she devoted herself to the land and the cultivation of vines. 

Slowly acquiring mature vineyards in Dogliani – long established as the home of superior Dolcetto and Barbera – Nicoletta focused on sites with strong terroir signatures and committed them to biodynamic viticulture. Her approach is a sympathetic one, nurturing fruit to express the variety, the site and the season, with an almost idealistic belief that winemaking is subordinate to the demands of the crop.

All fruit is hand-picked, yeasts are indigenous, temperature is rarely controlled and elevage takes place in variously sized, but always larger, oak casks. Nicoletta’s wines are triumph and tribute, polemics for the nobility of Dolcetto and elegies for the generations that worked the land before her.
