The 2004 Barolo Boscareto is a more vibrant and larger-scaled wine than the Serralunga. It presents lovely harmony in an expression of dark cherries, plums, spices, toasted oak and menthol, showing terrific overall balance and well-integrated tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2019. ||Ferdinando Principiano has made some radical changes in his approach, the most important of which are in the vineyards, where he is now pursuing much lower yields. Nature’s cycles are of course slow, and it often takes vines a few years to adapt to such changes. It will be interesting to follow developments here over the next few years. Wine Advocate.October, 2008
Ferdinando Principiano sums up all that is exciting in Barolo. Having worked at both Giacomo Conterno and Roberto Voerzio – both sides of the coin – he joined his father at the family estate in 1993. His first wines are more in the Voerzio style, though the 21st century wines here are more traditional.
