Boglietti’s 2005 Barolo Arione is an enveloping wine where the density and richness almost manage to cover the tannins. The wine possesses awesome symmetry and balance in its primary red fruit. Some of the typical aromas and flavors that are present in this wine have yet to develop, but the wine shows tons of density and the harmonious qualities that will allow it to age beautifully in bottle. How wonderful it is to see a grower once again making an important Barolo from this historic vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025. ||Enzo Boglietti is a young producer on the rise. Work continues to move forward on the new cellar, and more importantly, the wines are better than ever as was evidenced by the 2006s and 2007s I tasted from barrel and this gorgeous set of 2005s. Boglietti gives his Barolos 12-18 months in French oak barrels then moves the wines into larger 15-20 hectoliter casks where they finish their aging. As new oak levels have come down the wines have gained notable expressiveness and depth that was sometimes missing in prior vintages. In 2005 Boglietti brought in part of the fruit before the rains, and part after. His 2005s are built on freshness rather than structure, and offer terrific balance. In 2005 there is no Barolo Brunate as the vineyards are undergoing replanting. Boglietti does have a Riserva in the cellar made from the best fruit in the Fossati and Case Nere vineyards. The first vintage, the 2004, will be released next year. Based on what I tasted from barrel, it is a promising wine. Wine Advocate.April, 2009

Founded in 1991, this is a family run estate run by brothers Enzo and Gianni. Barriques are used and high density planting is employed.

“Enzo Boglietti makes some of the richest, most deeply-flavored Barolos in Piedmont.” Antonio Galloni
