The Barolo appellation covers a number of towns, but some of the greatest Nebbiolo vineyards of all are on the steeps of La Morra. It is here on this “Golden Slope” along with famous names including Case Nere, Fossati, Cerequio, and Brunate that Enzo’s vineyards flourish.

Taking over his family’s domaine in the early 1990’s, he has been making new-style Piedmont wines ever since. From these vineyards, he produces between 300 and 400 cases each of three crus: Case Nere, Fossati and Brunate.

Though he could produce much more, including a straight Barolo, he instead chooses to produce a super-Piedmont wine called “Buio.” Made from 80% Nebbiolo from his Barolo vineyards, he adds 20% Barbera to contribute color, fruit and a brighter nose.

His Dolcetto and Barbera’s are made with a combination of older oak and tank to create beautiful, concentrated, fruit-forward wines of exceptional quality for these varietals. Of particular interest is the aforementioned Dolcetto “Tiglineri” made from 60+ year old vines.
