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. ... More details

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.

Subtle, yet pure notes of cherry, strawberry, rose, woodsy underbrush and tobacco highlight this complex red. It's firmly structured and vibrant, with a lingering aftertaste of berries, mineral and tobacco. Best from 2022 through 2040. 192 cases made, 72 cases imported.

The 2016 Barolo Case Nere is a dark, mysterious wine. Black cherry, incense, licorice, gravel and smoke all give the Case Nere its beguiling aromatic profile. Deep and expressive, yet also light on its feet, the Case Nere offers tons of nuance as well as personality.
Winery
Case Nere is from 1.1ha, SE facing at 300-350m. The cru presents itself with a dark core of fruit and spice, often with mentholated high tones. 20% of the vines here are planted in 1950. Fermentation in open-top tine, 80 days of maceration. Aging is in French oak cask. 2,300 bottles made.

green grapes

Varietal: Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo grapes have been grown for centuries in the hilly region of northern Italy, and have more recently started to appear in many New World countries, too, where modern vintners have expressed great enthusiasm for their fine characteristics. Their fame and popularity is widely known, and the Nebbiolo varietal is recognized as the grape responsible for producing the legendary fine wines of Italy. Indeed, this grape is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, ranging from truffle and prune, to tobacco and violets, making the wines they produce a sensory delight which simply get better the longer they are aged. The grapes also lend a beautifully pale red color to their wines, which helped secure their place as some of the finest and most elegant to be found anywhere on earth.

Region: Piedmont

n Italy, the region most closely associated with excellent quality red wines and characterful sparkling wines is Piedmont. This alpine region is located in the north-west of the country, and features beautiful foothills of the impressive mountain range which forms the nearby border between Italy, France and Switzerland. Wineries in Piedmont work with the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive in the warm, dry summers and cooler autumns, as well as the beautifully expressive Moscato grapes which are used for the sparkling Asti wines the region is famed for. For generations, these wineries have perfected the art of aging their red wines, and blending grape varietals to get the most out of each one, leading to a region known all over the world for the exceptional quality of its produce.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
