Enzo Boglietti 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo
- 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
- Enzo’s Langhe Nebbiolo is declassified Barolo from La Morra with a bit of high altitude Roddino fruit judiciously added for extra structure.
- As is the case with his other “normale” releases, here we get a naked look at the varietal with admirable intensity and detail.
