Boglietti, Enzo

Azienda Agricola Enzo Boglietti is a family-run winery that produces about 100,000 bottles. The winery is located in La Morra, while the vineyards are scattered amongst the communes of La Morra, Barolo, Monforte, Serralunga d’Alba, Roddino, and Sinio.

Enzo Boglietti is in charge of all winery matters while Gianni Boglietti meticulously manages the vineyards and looks after the quality of grapes. Originally a polyculture farm, in 1991 brothers Enzo and Gianni Boglietti began to phase out the the other farming operations and establish their winery with their father’s 2.5 hectares of vines in La Morra; the family’s holdings have since grown to include just over 22 hectares. The estate will be certified organic as of the 2017 vintage. With the encouragement of friends and neighbors Alessandro Fantino, Roberto Voerzio, Andrea Oberto, and Eraldo Viberti, the brothers focused on farming with low yields achieved through green harvest and bunch thinning. Some of their vineyards boast very old vines, up to 100 years old. Any new plantings are planted at high (for the Barolo zone) densities of 7,000 plants per hectare. 

In the cellar, fermentations are spontaneous and temperature-controlled. The Barolo bottlings are aged first in barrique, then in large cask. Over the years, the house style has gotten less extractive, and the use of wood is tending to be larger and more neutral. As of the 2014 vintage, the Barolos are now fermented in large wood fermenters called "tine" with gentle macerations lasting up to a staggering 90 days; the wines are aged exclusively in large French oak botti of 2500L and larger.
