About the Winery:
Enzo Boglietti seems destined to be adorned with epithets such as ‘rock star,’ ‘rising star’ and ‘new wave’, however, these monikers tend to distract from the fact that Enzo, his brother Gianni and their father Renato are long-term growers and firm believers that hard work in the vineyard and attention to detail, not fashion, is what makes great wine.

In 1991, Enzo decided to make wine from the 2.5-hectare family vineyard with fruit the family had previously been selling. 1991 is perhaps not the most auspicious of vintages, but it was nonetheless the first step towards cementing the Boglietti name in the first ranks of modern Barolo producers. Today, they have 21 hectares of vines, and, as of 2006, a new purpose-built winery.

With vines in the hallowed sites of Brunate, Case Nere, Fossati and Arione, Boglietti certainly stands as a significant Barolo producer, but they are also regarded as one of the finest producers of Barbera, both cru and normale.

Mining the rich vein between the traditional and the modern, the Bogliettis produce profound and authentic wine, a testament to both their dedication and their respectful curiosity.
