About Cantina Boffa
This small but progressive winery is located in the heart of Barbaresco, just a stone’s throw from the famous Barbaresco Tower and with stunning views over the surrounding hillsides with their beautiful terraced vineyards. With a total of only 4 hectares, production is extremely limited – viticulture and winemaking is looked after by Carlo Boffa, whilst wife Laura takes care of the running of the business.
They specialise in the great reds of the region – Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto, although their Roero Arneis deserves serious attention. The wine cellar utilises the most modern technology, whereas the winemaking itself remains resolutely traditional. The Ovello Barbaresco is the epitome of complex, ethereal nature of their reds – full bodied but smooth, with the dry tannins so characteristic of the region.
