“Silky pure.” Top Canadian blogger and buyer Michael Godel on 2010 La Bogliona

Here’s what top Canadian wine blogger, author, and wine buyer Michael Godel (above) had to say about the 2010 La Bogliona on his popular blog Godello. He tasted at the winery last December.

    From the estate with one foot in the Monferrato Astigiano and the other in the Monferrato Alessandrino, the fruit for La Bogliona is drawn from one of two estate cru, which along with Poderi Bricchi are the reason Scarpa exists. This 2010 has certainly advanced and is a formidable if severe combination of secondary fruit character and exceptional acidity. The maceration time was 14-16 days, followed by 30-36 months in 15 hL grandi botti of various French ages and origins. Silky pure with a note like shoe polish on leather, variegated of high quality red fruit. So alive but also so lived. Impressive and instinctive you can only imagine the things it’s been and seen. Drink 2018-2024.  Tasted December 2018
