Enzo Boglietti 2018 Tiglineri Dolcetto D’Alba
- 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
- A “Cru” Dolcetto, from vineyards boasting 70-100 year old plant material. Sourced from estate vineyards in Dogliani and Monforte (for power) and La Morra (for perfume).
- Many critics call this the finest Dolcetto in Piedmont in terms of natural power and length. Keep a keen eye out for occasional library releases.
