Enzo Boglietti's Barbera d'Alba 2020 is a splendid example of the potential of Barbera when it's in the hands of a dedicated producer. The wine comes from the vineyards located in Alba, a region in the Piedmont of northwestern Italy, celebrated for its quality wine production.
Azienda Agricola Enzo Boglietti is a family run winery that produces about 100.000 bottles a year with grapes coming exclusively from ha 22 of vineyards of property.
The winery is located in La Morra, while the vineyards are scattered amongst the communes of La Morra, Barolo, Monforte, Serralunga d’Alba, Roddino and Sinio.
In the glass, Boglietti's Barbera d'Alba presents a deep ruby red color, a signature characteristic of Barbera. The nose is brimming with aromas of ripe red and dark fruits, such as cherries, plums, and blackberries.
Despite its robust fruit and acidity, the wine generally retains a medium-bodied character, with supple tannins lending structure without overwhelming the palate.
The finish is pleasant and persistent, allowing the fruit to linger and encouraging another sip. While already approachable in its youth, the wine's balance of acid, tannin, and fruit allows the wine to age beautifully for several years in the cellar.
As with many Italian wines, Enzo Boglietti's Barbera d'Alba is an excellent food wine. Its bright acidity and vibrant fruit make it versatile enough to pair with a wide range of dishes, from pizza and pasta to grilled meats and hearty stews.
