Bricco Boschis is a vineyard of significantly larger surface area, with Western exposition and an altitude ranging between 200-300 meters above sea level.
Compared to Rocche di Castiglione, the soil here is much richer in clay, resulting in Barolos with more intense color, bigger structure and pronounced tannins, all of which contributes to the wine’s longevity. Roccheviberti has several different parcels within the Bricco Boschis vineyard: in the highest part are plantings of Nebbiolo for Barolo and a small vineyard (“Vigna Malera”) of Dolectto for Dolcetto d’Alba, while the lower part contains is a vineyard of Barbera for Barbera d’Alba (“Vigna Lunga”) and another small parcel of Dolcetto. The Nebbiolo for Barolo vineyards consist of a small section that is about 35 years old and a larger section that was re-planted 5 years ago.
