Adjacent to Monforte, the legendary subregions of Barolowhere Conterno calls home, is a little-known wine territory to the south only just beginning to gain the attention it deserves—Dogliani. Characterized by steep hills and panoramic mountain views, this up-and-coming Piedmontese is planted to Dolcetto, a ruby-colored variety with bright fruit aromas and loads of personality. Dolcetto is capable of rendering intense and impressive expressions. It’s robust, elegant and fruit forward, with natural spice flavors and fleshy tannins.

The 2019 Dogliani Superiore Vigna dei Prey is packed with rich scents of blueberry, blackberry jam, gravel, lavender, spice, menthol and chocolate. In 2020, the Prey is brisk and beautifully delineated, a wine of persistence more than just body. It, too, is impressive. 92 pts Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The Boschis Francesco 2019 Dogliani Superiore Pianezzo - Vigna dei Prey reveals lovely darkness and freshness, with punchy dark blackberry fruit to drive the message home. There is a raw and natural character that only the Dolcetto grape can bring. This, along with its acidity and freshness of fruit, is what ultimately makes it so food friendly, especially with a pizza or an easy pasta.
