95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2006 Barolo Via Nuova opens with notable energy and drive in its dark red fruit, spices, menthol and sweet licorice. This long, pure Barolo reveals gorgeous length, beautifully balanced oak and superb overall balance. A mineral-laced finish rounds out the Via Nuova in grand style. For her 2006 Via Nuova Boschis used 70% new oak barrels with lower toast than in prior vintages and it shows in the wine’s class. This is a fabulous effort from Chiara Boschis. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.

Proprietor Chiara Boschis was in high spirits when I visited in November. Her 2009s were just finishing their malos and already seemed quite promising. In 2009 Boschis vinified fruit from a new parcel she is renting in the Conterni vineyard in Monforte. With her 2009s, Boschis also dropped the percentage of new oak barrels to 50%. It will be interesting to see the direction her wines take. Suffice it to say every Barolo I tasted from vintages 2005-2009 was exceptional. Boschis, one of Piedmont’s small, artisan growers, is a producer whose wines merit far more attention than they receive." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2010)

92+ Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Deep red-ruby color. Pure, scented aromas of sour cherry and licorice. At once juicy and powerful, with a distinctly creamier, sweeter middle palate than the 2005 version in spite of its more serious structure. Black cherry fruit is complicated by a subtle balsamic quality. Finishes with big toothdusting tannins and excellent length." - Stephen Tanzer (Nov/Dec 09)
