The 2008 is a gorgeous mid-weight wine laced with sweet red cherries flowers spices mint and minerals. This is a decidedly feminine gracious Cannubi Boschis that impresses for its elegance class and finesse. Sweet floral notes add brightness on the Pinot-like vibrant finish. The wine keeps getting better and better in the glass. This too is a dazzling effort. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.-Antonio Galloni

Deeper but less forthcoming on the nose than Le Vigne hinting at black cherry menthol and flowers. Then broader and deeper on the palate conveying a more classically dry impression than the wonderfully sweet round 2007. As creamy as this is it's dominated today by its impression of energy and medicinal black cherry reserve. Most impressive right now on the tightly coiled rising electric finish which unfurls spectacularly as the wine sits in the glass. A great expression of Cannubi terroir. 95+

This nose is divine. Aromas of perfumes roses and ripe fruit. Full body with fine tannins and a dark chocolate finish. Tight and very very pretty. Needs to loosen up a bit with about three to four years of bottle age... This nose is divine. Aromas of perfumes roses and ripe fruit. Full body with fine tannins and a dark chocolate finish. Tight and very very pretty. Needs to loosen up a bit with about three to four years of bottle age. Better in 2014.

In the menthol mode, with additional flavors of cherry, tobacco and hints of tar, this red is bright and focused. The dusty tannins on the finish are complimented by sweet fruit. Offers fine, chewy length. Best from 2017... In the menthol mode, with additional flavors of cherry, tobacco and hints of tar, this red is bright and focused. The dusty tannins on the finish are complimented by sweet fruit. Offers fine, chewy length. Best from 2017 through 2035. – BS

Boschis is the northern corner of the Cannubi hill a vineyard facing south and southeast toward the morning sun. It produced a precise 2008 a reticent wine with fresh brisk tannins and vibrant cherry-red fruit. Grown in marine sediments of clay and limestone this grows increasingly distinctive as it takes on air. The style is clean enough to enjoy it as a young wine but the potential won't be reached for ten years or more.
