vigneti boveri giacomo

With roots in Colli Tortonesi dating to the early 19th century, Giacomo Boveri defines himself as a traditional winemaker. For five generations, the family has worked and perfected their agriculture talents in the province of Alessandria. Giacomo, accompanied by his wife Sara Bonadeo, took over the family holdings beginning in 1988.

In their small Piemontese corner, a special white grape variety, Timorasso, has been rediscovered. Beginning in 1987 with the winemaker/pioneer Walter Massa, the grape’s resurgence has encouraged other courageous producers to work with the lesser-known variety.

In addition to their work in helping the resurgence of this great white variety, Giacomo and Sara also cultivate Barbera along with a lesser-known local red variety, Croatina. All wines are hand harvested and see fermentation and aging exclusively in stainless steel tanks. The ‘Carassa’ is 100% Barbera and is sourced from a 60 year old Vineyard. The ‘Firangiuli’ is 100% Croatina from a 10 year old vineyard and also sees two years maturation in tank before bottling.
