However, the family origins lie in the mists of time.
Many family documents have survived thanks to the conservation and classification work of Don Carlo Pollina (1744-1799), the guardian of little Carlo Antonio Boroli, Silvano’s Great Great Great Grandfather.
Among them, the coat of arms tells us about great merits in the crusades, as shown by the Crescent and the scimitar brandished by the lion rampant, a symbol of perspicacity and bravery. On its part, the shining sun tells us about the resources of the family, blessed by Divine Providence.
Silvano married Elena Verri in 1968; they have 4 sons (Carlo, Guido, Achille and Filippo) who work in different fields, and now 7 grandchildren.
Silvano worked in the graphics-publishing industry until the ’90s and decided to change his life by devoting himself to an old passion of his: the land, which for a Piedmontese can only mean Langa wines.
Achille, after graduating in business administration, decided to take care of the wine-growing and producing business and deal with food-and-wine connoisseurship. After gaining the Michelin Star with the Locanda del Pilone, with the 2012 grape harvest he decided to radically change the methods used in vineyards and vineries, aiming at total quality for Barolo and its crus.
Culture and wine: many things in common, first of all quality.
Total and constant quality, with no compromises
