Barolo DOCG 2018 - Borgogno

Its simple, white label, with the words BORGOGNO in capital letters prominently displayed at the top, is already a guarantee for fans of the good red wines of Piedmont. We are, after all, in the presence of a historic Langhe company, whose wines are awarded and praised every year by international wine critics. In this case, in particular, we are dealing with a very interesting Barolo that comes from the union of the 5 cru vineyards owned by the company: Liste, Cannubi, Fossati, Cannubi San Lorenzo and San Pietro delle viole. An example of elegance and power at the same time. A true Barolo of yesteryear. In the cellar the grapes are fermented spontaneously, without added yeasts, in cement tanks for about 12 days. This is followed by a long submerged cap maceration phase that lasts at least 30 days and, after racking, malolactic fermentation is triggered. For the maturation phase, Borgogno grapes 4500-litre Slavonian oak barrels, where the wine rests without being disturbed for at least 4 years. This is followed by a further 6 months of bottle ageing. It is the wine of the feast, the one to be served with traditional dishes, such as the classic ravioli with meat sauce or with a mixed boiled meat. Obviously the meat 'must' be 100% Piedmontese.

Any time is the right time to drink Barolo. And if the people at Borgogno say so, they are certainly to be believed. After all, this is the most historic cellar in Barolo, dating back to 1761. Even today, the underground cellars represent a rare historical memory of the Langa, where the wines are produced according to tradition, with long spontaneous fermentation without the use of selected yeasts in cement tanks, and above all with long aging strictly in large Slavonian oak barrels. Borgogno cultivates its vineyards in Barolo, Madonna di Como, and in the Colli Tortonesi. With full respect for the land. No chemical fertilisers or herbicides. Only sustainable treatments and, from 2019, certified organic. Today, Borgogno continues to be an expression of a territory, tradition and history. Always, however, with an eye to the future.
