The history of the Azienda began in 1919 when Telesforo Boschis moved from the vineyards of Barolo to the hill of Pianezzo, in Dogliani. After few days borned his son Francesco. Telesforo here continued his work planting new vineyards. It was in 1968 that Francesco and his son Mario started to vinify a part of the grapes, producing a few hundred bottles af the wine now we know as “Pianezzo”. The experience achieved permit to make the most of the natural characteristic different vines and soils have, and their exposure to the sun gives.
For this reason they started to vinify separately the grapes of some vineyards obtaining in 1983 the “Vigna dei Prey”, in 1986 the “Sorì San Martino” and in 2001 the “Vigna del Ciliegio”. Vineyards are planted in the azienda’s most suited areas, but there are also hazelnuts, fields and meadows.
We produce different kinds of grapes: Dolcetto (80% of the total productions), our area has a perfect climate condition for this variety, Barbera, Freisa, Grignolino and Sauvignon Blanc. We believe on the respect of the nature, for this we follow the lines given by the European Union Program for a eco-compatible Agriculture (Misura Agroambientale 214.1). We reduce pesticide treatments and we don’t use fertilizer but natural mature produced in our little stable.
The wines are unfiltered and the traditional vinification can involve in bottles a perfectly natural presence of sediments. Mario and Simona run the estate with their sons Paolo and Marco. Our labels are all designed by Teresita Terreno except the one of “Vigna del Ciliegio” which is Mali’s (Marianne) opera.
