Langhe Nebbiolo 2014 -Enzo Boglietti

A couple of weeks ago I was on holiday in Italy, Piedmont, Langhe. It was one of the best holidays of my life, really. The reason Davide and I went there, of course, is for the wines.

Piedmont wines and, in particular, wines from this small wine region called Langhe are one of the best in Italy and Barolo, a wine variety made from nebbiolo grapes, is my favourite wine.

The first wine I had during my holiday was in a wine bar, Uve, in La Morra.
