2018 Barbera d'Alba Roscaleto, Enzo Boglietti, Piemonte
A genuine jewel in the crown of the Boglietti holdings is the famous 'Roscaletto' vineyard in La Morra. Inherited by Enzo from his uncle, though planted exclusively with Barbera it is actually situated in prime Nebbiolo country.
So concentrated and focused with tremendous aromatic complexity and drive, this cuvee gives way to a bold and exuberant core of rich, fully ripe and concentrated coco, red cherry and damson fruit flavours. There is guile in the glass too, with a deeply structured, vivacious line of fine tannin and minerality flowing through the wine's core. Creamy vanilla notes from French oak maturation compliment perfectly the plush, velvet like texture in this wine. There is real soul here as well as effortless panache. Simply stunning.

The Boglietti winery was established in 1991, and remains a family-run business to this day.
Originally only 2.5 hectares, the estate has grown with its owner’s reputation and now boasts an impressive 21 hectares in prime, La Morra. The winery is overseen by Enzo, whilst father Renato and brother Gianni tend to the vineyards.
