About the Wine

This wine is a fantastic representation of the deep-rooted traditions and exceptional terroir of Barolo.

Since 1761, Borgogno has been crafting outstanding wines. This historic winery has been a pillar of the Barolo wine scene for over two centuries, thanks to Bartolomeo Borgogno's vision.

Throughout the years, Borgogno wines have played a role in significant moments, like the Unification of Italy in 1861 and Tsar Nicola II Romanov's visit in 1908.

Borgogno remains faithful to traditional winemaking methods. They use concrete tanks for fermentation and age their wines in large Slavonian oak barrels. Cesare Borgogno's ingenious decision to hold back half of the Barolo Riserva production for two decades has resulted in extraordinary wines.

In 2008, the Farinetti family took ownership, and committed to upholding traditions. Renovations in 2009 restored the main building to its former glory. In 2013, they returned to using concrete for fermentation and embraced organic practices in 2015.

Borgogno's estate spans 50.6 hectares, with a focus on Nebbiolo, along with Dolcetto, Barbera, Freisa, Riesling, and Timorasso. They proudly possess five esteemed Barolo cru vineyards: Liste, Cannubi, Cannubi San Lorenzo, Fossati, and San Pietro delle Viole.

In 2019, Borgogno created this remarkable Nebbiolo Langhe, showcasing Barolo's unique character. Expect ripe red fruit, floral hints, and an elegant structure that reflects the region's traditions and terroir.

Tasting Notes: 100% Nebbiolo. Ruby red color with violet highlights that will tend to garnet. On the nose persistent hints of flowers such as roses and violets and fresh fruit, but also pepper, and spices. In the mouth freshness, light acidity, elegant tannins. Harmonious. 


Classic styling here. Lively perfume, cherry and plum fruit, with a little liquorice and spice. Medium to full-bodied, sure-footed dusty tannin grip, freshness and flavour, with a lively finish of excellent length. Spot on. Better still with a couple more years under its belt. ~92 The Wine Front
