Enzo Boglietti 2016 Chardonnay

Producer Info
  • Enzo Boglietti established his winery in 1991 in the heart of La Morra after growing up farming grapes, tending dairy cows and making fine cheeses with his father.
  • Since then his holdings have grown to include 50 acres of single vineyard sites scattered across the Langhe.
  • Enzo might well be the most open minded, progressive grower/vintner you'll come across in Piemonte - Visit his winery during harvest and you will find new experiments around each corner, with carefully marked lots bubbling away in every vessel imaginable, from botti, to foudre, to concrete egg, to barrique.

    Lemon straw with golden hues. Intense and fragrant bouquet of flowers and stone fruit. Finely textured and harmonius it has a vivid acidity that leads to a very persistent finish. A Chardonnay that shows great finesse and a mouthwatering freshness.
