Boglietti Winery

Established in 1991 by brothers Enzo and Gianni Boglietti, the Boglietti Winery is a testament to a rich family tradition of winemaking. The brothers, having grown up farming their father's original vineyard in La Morra, expanded the family's holdings to over 50 acres of single vineyard sites, most of which lie on Piedmont's famed golden slope, a region known for its superior wines. Some of these vineyards boast 100-year-old-plus plant material, adding a touch of history and depth to the flavors of the wines produced. The Boglietti lineup, ranging from stylish normale to stunning cru Dolcetto, Barbera, and Barolo, has few rivals when it comes to energy and depth of character. These wines are the result of grapes that are sustainably farmed and picked by hand, ensuring only the highest quality produce is used. The fermentation process is carried out with native yeasts, maintaining the natural integrity and flavor profile of the grapes. The Boglietti Winery is a perfect blend of tradition and innovation, producing wines that are not only delightful to the palate but also respectful of the environment. The result is a collection of wines that truly reflect the passion and dedication of the Boglietti brothers and their commitment to the art of winemaking.

Enzo Boglietti, Case Nere, 2016

Enzo Boglietti's Case Nere 2016 is a grand manifestation of Nebbiolo. The Case Nere vineyard holds notable prestige in the Piedmont region of Italy, nestled in the esteemed Barolo DOCG. This vineyard yields some of the highest quality Nebbiolo grapes, resulting in some of the most acclaimed Barolo wines, including those crafted by Enzo Boglietti.

Piedmont, characterized by its cool climate and misty conditions, is the birthplace of the Nebbiolo grape, reaching its peak expression in this region. The Case Nere vineyard is located in the commune of La Morra, one of the five paramount communes of the Barolo area, reputed for producing wines with a harmonious blend of strength and refinement.

The Case Nere vineyard boasts calcareous clay soils abundant in minerals that add to the depth and intricacy of the wines it yields.

The aromatic spectrum is wide and captivating, with layers of mature red fruits like cherries and plums. It also carries fainter notes of dried herbs, tobacco, and a whisper of spice, hinting at its maturation period in oak barrels.

The palate of the Case Nere 2016 is equally remarkable. It is a wine of elegance and intensity, with the red fruit flavors persisting from the nose. These are splendidly counterbalanced by savory undertones, firm yet refined tannins, and a vibrant acidity that provides a tantalizing backbone to the wine.

Ultimately, Enzo Boglietti's Case Nere 2016 is a standout Barolo that exemplifies the best of what the Nebbiolo grape and the Case Nere vineyard can produce. A delightful partner to dishes like slow-cooked meats or rich pasta dishes, it's a wine that delivers an authentic and pleasurable taste of Piedmont.
