"Wonderful clarity to this wine with floral, cedar, pure-strawberry and citrus aromas that follow through to a full bodied, tight and focused palate with tannins that flow through to the finish. Such purity and beauty to this. Try after 2023."

"The Case Nere site in La Morra sees a mix of silt and clays soil. One adds freshness and aromatic intensity and the other adds structure. The Enzo Boglietti 2016 Barolo Case Nere is a pristine and balanced expression of Nebbiolo with delicate fruit tones backed by tar, smoke and licorice. You also get some floral aromas that are not unusual in wines that come from La Morra. Production is very small with just 2,000 bottles released."
