This is what I would characterize as their “villages” bottling, bursting with substance (like everything here)…..Made to be more approachable than the steps higher up the ladder, it includes some 30% Croatina for a fleshier palate. Yum yum, please.
“Mimmo” is dedicated to a friend from Boca who worked with us in the last 10 years contributing to improve the quality standards in our vineyards. This wine uses the method of combining the typical grapes of this area. Less structured and riper parts of “Boca DOC” (Nebbiolo and Vepsolina grapes) are blended after 2 years of aging in large barrels together with riper Croatina grapes (30%) to produce a wine which is lighter and more amenable than “Boca DOC” and functions as good door-opener to the more complex but also more demanding flagship wine “Boca DOC”. There is a nice floral and fruity flavour with a soft elegance and long-lasting taste. “Mimmo” does not need to age for long but matures well over a period of 3 to 6 years” – Christoph

“The 2016 Mimmo is another super-expressive and wonderfully inviting wine in this range. Dark cherry, mint, pine, licorice and dried herbs infuse the 2016 with striking aromatic nuance to play off its ethereal, mid-weight personality. Bright, bold and punchy, the 2016 captures the essence of the appellation so well. Suggestions of tobacco, cedar, and crushed flowers add layers of complexity. The 2016 remains a bit nervy in feel, but it offers tons of persistence and class to burn.” 93 Antonio Galloni for the 2016, NOT THE 2017 OFFERED HERE
