Barbera d'Alba, Enzo Boglietti, Piemonte 2020
Enzo Boglietti, one of the most creative of the new generation of Piedmont winegrowers created the Boglietti cantina in 1991 in la Morra, the very heart of the Piedmont and one of the few areas to have special DOCG status. Enzo strongly believed in the exceptional quality of his vineyards to produce this world-class barbera. There is a structured, earthy core whilst a veil of freshness and fine tannin complete this modern, bold and expressive wine.
If Nebbiolo is Piedmonte's star red variety, then barbera comes a very close second. Enzo's entry cuveé of barbera is a symphony of candied raspberry and bramble fruit, crème de cassis and lifted pink petal aromas. The weight here is delicate, but the fruit impact on the palate is plush and pure - such ripeness and direction.
