The Wine

This vino is the classic, traditional formula used by the ancient Barolo Families to produce a Barolo which embraces each of the peculiar characters of the different vineyards and terroirs of the Barolo area. The Barolo Classic Borgogno is made by the combination of the grapes coming from five of the most prestigious vineyards of the Barolo area: Cannubi, Cannubi San Lorenzo, Fossati, Liste, San Pietro delle Viole. 

 "Red fruits, star anise, roses, aromatic herbs. It's medium-bodied, kind of pretty,  but appropriately firm. Lovely tussle between quiet succulence of fruit and tannin, ideal freshness, and a long finish with just a little blood orange coming through. So classic. Love this." 95 Points Gary Walsh, Wine Front

About the Wine Maker

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. He also implemented an impressive wine library at the estate. To this day, half of the Barolo production is held back, only to be released 20 years later. In the 1960s, Franco Boschis took over as manager until the Farinetti family bought the estate in 2008. Under Andrea Farinetti's leadership, organic conversion was initiated and the winery began using only cement vats for fermentation, a return to the original winemaking style. All the wines are made at the estate's winemaking facility in Barolo village in an underground network of historic fermentation and aging rooms. Made with long maceration times and minimal intervention, the wines are renowned for their traditional style and long-term aging potential, a favourite of Italian wine professionals and collectors.
