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.
