Boniperti

Gilberto Boniperti's modest estate in the hills of Alto Piemonte exemplifies everything we love about Italian mountain wines. They're fresh and floral, teeming with Alpine minerality, and a perfect choice for dining al fresco.

Gilberto assiduously farms his 4.5ha of primarily Nebbiolo and Vespolina. Quoting his grandfather, he often says "Quando non sai cosa fare, vai in vigna... c'è sempre qualcosa da fare lì!" (When you don’t know what to do, just go to the vineyard ... there is always something to do there!).

His approach is simple: every decision he makes is driven by a deep reverence for his land and his craft. Asked about his process and what goes into his wines, Gilberto will offer a characteristically simple response — sun, land, and tradition — all of which are remarkably present in every bottle Boniperti produces.

The vineyards are densely planted, ensuring low yields and concentrated fruit. In the cellar, the grapes undergo low-tech winemaking influenced by friend and consultant Cristiano Garella (of Colombera & Garella). This minimalist approach yields elegant, soulful and interesting wines that genuinely speak to Alto-Piemonte's unique terroir.

WE 90
"Made with 70% Nebbiolo and 30% Vespolina, this has aromas of woodland berry, dried herb and star anise. It's elegantly structured, featuring red cherry, raspberry, white pepper and orange zest set against taut, elegant tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Drink through 2030." -Kerin O’Keefe
