Since 1761, the most historical winery in Barolo. The underground cellars continue to represent a rare historical memory of the Langa to this day, and the wines are made according to tradition: long spontaneous fermentations in concrete tanks without the use of selected yeasts, and long periods of ageing, strictly in large Slavonian oak barrels.
This is the classic, traditional “Formula” used by the ancient Barolo Families to produce a Barolo which embraces and melts 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.
Classic Borgogno perfume, even from a hot year. Pressed roses, almond paste, red fruit, a smattering of dried herb and orange. Medium-bodied, red fruit, cherry, nutty flavour, but also quite fine and fresh, some brick dust tannin with a subtle orange peel bitterness, juicy cherry and fine dusty grip on a long fresh finish. A little more chewy and rugged than the 2016, but still offers the classic Borgogno experience.
