Enzo Boglietti 2016 Buio Blend
- 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
- “Buio” is Italian for “dark,” which is an easy (albeit simplistic) way to describle this modern/flamboyant blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera that was first produced in the early nineties at the dawn of the “Super-Piemontese” era.
