Enzo Boglietti 2016 Case Nere 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
- Case Nere is situated between the upper portion of Fossati and the open end of Cerequio. Exposure moves from South to East as the vineyard continues towards the township of Barolo. The site is sheltered 360 degrees (think of a cul de sac), which allows it to maintain heat – As a result this Cru always delivers exuberant black fruit on top of the sturdy mineral backbone you’d expect from the soil there.
