Notes from Elixir Wine Group:

"Enzo Boglietti established his winery in 1991 in the heart of La Morra after growing up farming grapes, tending dairy cows and making fine cheeses with his father. Since then his holdings have grown to include 50 acres of single vineyard sites scattered across the LangheEnzo might well be the most open minded, progressive grower/vintner you’ll come across in Piemonte – Visit his winery during harvest and you will find new experiments around each corner, with carefully marked lots bubbling away in every vessel imaginable, from botti, to foudre, to concrete egg, to barrique.

Enzo owns most of this remarkable east-facing Cru, which sits just southwest of its more famous neighbor, Brunate, descending down towards Sarmassa. Fossati is easily identifiable when looking up from the valley by the ruins that lay in the center of the vineyard, which were the residence of Enzo’s ancestors for several centuries.


Fossati is an interesting Cru as wines made from this site move into savory/spicy secondary aromas quickly each vintage (as soon as a year post-bottling!) but stay there for decades without falling off. The experience tasting ten and fifteen year old vintages of Fossati with Enzo is a revelatory exercise in proving this point."
