About This Producer

Borgogno was officially "started" in 1848, though documents show that its real foundation began in 1761. It quickly gained recognition and fame, so much so that it was served at the celebration for the unitification of Italy in 1867. Cesare Borgogno, in the early 1920s, put it on the course to national and international recognition. In 1968, Franco Cesare, Cesare Borgogno's nephew, took on the label. Today, Borgogno is synonymous with consistent premium quality and adherence to the traditional style of Barolo. The Barolo Classico is a sublime blend of the finest hillside estates (Liste, San Pietro delle Viole, Cannubi, Cannubi Boschis and Brunate). They exhibit the ultimate balance, grace and muscular harmony expected from world-class Barolo.

Wine Varietal: Nebbiolo

Big, dark, and bold, Nebbiolo is a robust variety with heavy tannins and a sometimes bitter profile. While areas outside Italy (Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, California, and South Africa) have begun cultivating Nebbiolo, the Italian region of Piedmont is where it reaches its greatest height. It is here, the historic home to Nebbiolo, where the finest Barolos and Barbarescos are produced. Many winemakers have compared this grape to Pinot Noir for its difficult growing habits and unpredictable cellar and aging behavior. Typical descriptors for Nebbiolo include roses, violets, tar, wild herbs, cherries, raspberries, truffles, and tobacco.
