Bosco Agostino

La Morra,
Barolo, Piemonte, Italy

About the producer

Bosco is a small family winery established by Pietro Bosco (1904 – 1983). Located in the heart of Barolo, within La Morra, the estate embodies a rich heritage. Piero initially embarked on a career in farming and vineyard work. However, in 1979, he made the pivotal decision to fully commit himself to the art of winemaking. Spanning an area of 5.5 hectares, the Bosco family vineyards are divided among Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto varietals. Continuing the family legacy, Piero's grandson, Andrea, passionately crafts exceptionally refined Barolo wines. Each bottle reflects a harmonious blend of traditional methods infused with a fresh and modern perspective. With occasional assistance from his father, Agostino, Andrea wholeheartedly dedicates himself to producing the region's four key wines: Barolo, Dolcetto d’Alba, Barbera d’Alba, and Langhe Nebbiolo.
