Enzo Boglietti 2017 Brunate Barolo
- 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
- The Brunate “Cru” is a true archtype of high class Barolo. This La Morra vineyard spills over into the actual township of Barolo on a long slope which varies from 260-405 meters above sea level. Exposure is predominantly south to southeast. Enzo loves making wine from this site as it has the rare ability to deliver perfumed elegance and power in equal parts.
