Borgogno Barolo 2016
The wine is ruby red in color. It has a spicy nose reminiscent of pepper and licorice. Dry taste and persistent tannins.
Borgogno Barolo comes from our best Crus that give us the true traditional Barolo: CANNUBI, LISTE and FOSSATI, three single vineyards located in the district of Barolo.
It ages at least four years in large oak barrels, which enhance the balance between elegance and power of the classic Barolo from Barolo.
A classic wine: it expresses its tradition through the blending of five different crus representing the true and onetime Barolo.
Founded in 1761, Borgogno is the oldest continuously operating winery in Barolo. Cesare Borgogno expanded the winery’s production in the 1920s and commercial success followed as he became one of the first winemakers from Piedmont to ship wines abroad.
Today, the estate includes 39 hectares with 31 planted to vine. These include five hectares of Timorasso and rows in some of Barolo’s most storied vineyards including Liste, Cannubi, Cannubi San Lorenzo, Fossati, and San Pietro delle Viole.
Made with long maceration times and minimal intervention, the wines are renowned for their traditional style and long-term aging potential, a favorite of Italian wine professionals and collectors.
