Wine maker notes
Wine produced with Barbera grapes. The colour is very intense, ruby red. On the nose it offers aromas of ripe forest fruits and undertones of vanilla while on the palate this wine is close-texture, mouth-filling with aromas of ripe raspberries and blackberries. There is a nice balance of acidity alcohol and tannins followed by a long-appealing finish. It is ideal for a long period of ageing; matured in cask for 6 months and refined in bottle for 6 months. Serving temperature is 18°C and it can be served through the entire meal.

Producer
The Borolis are a Piedmontese family who have been in business in the region – first in textiles, and now in winegrowing – since 1831. Boroli is comprised of two estates: Cascina Bompe, in a small village just outside of Alba with its own winery and La Brunella in the heart of Barolo in Castiglione Falletto. In addition to the vineyards above, the property includes Villero and Borgata Cerequio both considered two of the Langhe’s great cru vineyards. Each vineyard has a particular terrior — La Brunella has a mostly medium-loamy chalk soil with sand veins, and east to south, southwesterly and west exposures. The Villero exposition is south-southwest and the soil is a moisture-retaining mix of marl, clay and silt. Borgata Cerequio faces south and southeast on limestone and sand soil, at an altitude of 900 feet above sea level. The estate’s director is the winemaker Enzo Alluvione, who is assisted by his son Daniele in the vineyards. The estate’s consultant is the noted winemaker Beppe Caviola who was chosen a Gambero Rosso‘s Winemaker of the Year in 2002.
