Enzo Boglietti 2017 Boiolo Barolo

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
  • Fruit comes from La Morra where the soil is silty sub-alkaline clay with very little organic matter. The high concentration of limestone lends great texture and warmth of aroma. Exposure is east to southeast at altitudes ranging from 300-350m.
  • Aging potential: up to 12-15 years.
