Boglietti Barolo Case
The Boglietti's took over this vineyard from it's pharmacist owner in 2002, with half a hectare beside Conterno's vineyard. From it they make 3,000 bottles. The Barolo's from 2011 have a richness, and are drinking well now, especially if decanted, with plum, dried red-apple, porcini and wet-bark notes.
2008 had a warm start to the season but as September arrived so did the cooling temperatures, leading to a vintage known for its pure red fruit but good structures. This aged release is directly from Enzo Boglietti's winery cellar stock, and is beautifully perfumed now with dried red cherry, autumn leaves and spice.
Fossati is a small cru within La Morra, and Enzo has kindly allowed us to buy some now mature 2009 directly from his cellar. Complex and perfumed with balsamic spice, leather, and dried cherries that leads to surprisingly youthful red-apple, floral and earthy depths still held well by firm tannins and a long finish.
