Francesco Boschis Langhe Freisa Bosco delle Cicale 2022

Under-the-radar doesn't even begin to describe Francesco Boschis. A humble, family-run operation that repeatedly turns out gorgeous wines at stellar prices? You can thank their zip code in Dogliani, a lesser-known entity barely touched by the glow of its prestigious neighbors Barolo and Barbaresco. Boschis mostly works with old vine Dolcetto, so this Freisa — a native Piedmont variety — is a nice surprise. It's dry, zippy, and full of red fruited notes like cherry and strawberry. A knockout with cured meats.
