Borgogno

Borgogno needs very little introduction. This historic estate sits in the centre of Barolo and has always produced benchmark, traditional Barolo wines.


 


Established in 1761, by Bartolomeo Borgogno, this estate was one of the first producers in the area; however, it was in 1920 when Cesare Borgogno took over management that the winery's direction and destination was really changed forever. Cesare started to export his wines but also had the vision to keep aside at least half of the production, with the idea of releasing it after a minimum of 20 years ageing. Due to this decision, Borgogno has an unprecedented collection of older vintages held back in their cellar.


Today, the estate is managed by Andrea Farinetti after it was acquired by his family in 2008. This young winemaker is combining both the history and traditions of this estate with a modern approach. The result is absolutely fantastic wines.


In respect of the Earth, Borgogno does not use chemical fertilizers or herbicides in conjunction with sustainable treatments. They began their conversion process to organic farming in 2016 and intend to be Certified Organic in the very near future.

(Barolo Riserva 2011) "This is really powerful with lots of rich fruit, giving character of dried figs and dried flowers. Full-bodied and chewy with lots of extracted tannins. A flavorful finish. Intense flavors at the end. Still muscular. Needs some aging to resolve the tannins." 94 points, James Suckling (October 2018)
