Enzo Boglietti 2014 Roscaleto Barbera

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.
About the Wine
  • A Boglietti family jewel, Roscaleto is sourced from a historic vineyard in La Morra that Enzo inherited from his uncle.
  • While many growers would be tempted to replant this superb site with Nebbiolo to make (more expensive) Barolo, Enzo loves the brooding, exotic, finely textured Barbera fruit Roscaleto produces each year.

Tasting Notes

Intense bouquet of ripe black fruit with mineral, spicy notes. Already harmonic, with generous fruit, ripe tannins and good acidity that contribute to a very pleasant and long aftertaste.
