BAROLO RISERVA MAGNUM 2005 BY ENZO BOGLIETTI
The greatest wines of the world will only show themselves with age. Barolo Riserva Magnum 2005 by Enzo Boglietti is perfect provenance Barolo Riserva from an iconic estate at its drinking prime.
Up until now, this 2005 Barolo Riserva has been maturing in its original resting place. Produced by time honoured and internationally respected winemaker Enzo Boglietti, this wine is an exquisite piece of art-albeit one that can be touched, opened and thoroughly enjoyed.
Barolo Riserva Magnum 2005 hails from the “Golden Slope” of La Morra which encompasses some of the most expensive and sought after vineyards in all of Barolo. Barolo in its prime has no equal.
This bottle vividly captures the traditional essence of this storied region — fresh and dried violets and roses, crystalline and drying red fruit, crushed minerals, balanced earthiness and enthralling aromatics.
Made by a soon to be globally revered icon, this is one of the greatest gifts for any true wine lover and the magnum format is ideal for showcasing the ethereal beauty of this 2005.

TASTING NOTE / The 2005 Barolo Riserva is a deeply, plush wine layered with black fruit, smoke, leather and liquorice. Bound together with a cloak of uber-fine tannin and an electric, mineral infused core, this Riserva is both sensual, polished and pure.

Azienda Agricola Enzo Boglietti is a family run winery located in La Morra, while the vineyards are scattered amongst La Morra, Barolo, Monforte, Serralunga d’Alba, Roddino and Sinio.
Enzo Boglietti is among the most exciting rising star producers we have ever tasted in Piedmont. Ironically, this moniker tends to distract from the fact that Enzo, and his brother Gianni are long-term growers and firm believers that hard work in the vineyard and attention to detail, not fashion, is what makes great wine.
