Enzo Boglietti's Case Nere 2016 is a magnificent expression of Nebbiolo. The Case Nere vineyard is a renowned site in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy, specifically within the hallowed grounds of the Barolo DOCG. This vineyard is a source of some of the finest Nebbiolo grapes and, in turn, some of the most celebrated Barolo wines, including those produced by Enzo Boglietti.
Piedmont, with its cool climate and foggy conditions, is the native home of the Nebbiolo grape, which achieves its fullest expression here. The Case Nere vineyard is situated in the commune of La Morra, one of the five most important communes of the Barolo area, which is known for producing wines with a good balance of power and elegance.
The Case Nere vineyard features calcareous clay soils, rich in minerals that contribute to the depth and complexity of the wines.
The aromatic profile is broad and captivating, with layers of ripe red fruits like cherries and plums. It also carries subtler notes of dried herbs, tobacco, and a hint of spice, suggestive of its time spent maturing in oak barrels.
The palate of the Case Nere 2016 is no less impressive. It is a wine of elegance and intensity, with the red fruit flavors carrying through from the nose. These are wonderfully balanced by savory undertones, firm yet refined tannins, and a fresh acidity that provides an enticing backbone to the wine.
In all, Enzo Boglietti's Case Nere 2016 is a standout Barolo that showcases the best of what the Nebbiolo grape, and the Case Nere vineyard, have to offer. A delightful companion to dishes like braised meats or rich pasta dishes, it's a wine that promises an authentic and enjoyable taste of Piedmont.
