Three shades of Barolo: Cerequio, Villero & Brunella

"Vinum regum, rex vinorum" Wine of Kings and King of Wines. This is one of the many definitions of Barolo, one of the most noted red wines in Italy and the world, the highest expression of Langhe’s wine culture and the beating heart of our winery. We have always done micro vinifications of our crus, Cerequio, Villero and beginning this year, Brunella alongside the production of the Barolo DOCG. The 100% nebbiolo wines made from these prestigious vines under the ‘regal’ name of Barolo preserve their peculiarities and nuances that distinguish them from each other.   Barolo DOCG Cerequio - Barolo from the ‘Riviera’ A soft and elegant wine, the Barolo Cerequio Boroli is obtained from the cru vineyards from the same name between Barolo and La Morra, always identified as a lively area with a really great microclimate that merits the title of “Riviera delle Langhe.” A harmonious and elegant taste with floral notes...

A CORNER OF FRANCE IN THE HILLS OF ALBA

THE BAROLO THAT WAS MISSING

Thursday, 14 September at the elegant Mandarin Bistrot in Milan we presented the latest newcomer to the Boroli family: Barolo Brunella 2013. Incorporating this newcomer in a horizontal tasting that also included Barolo 2013, Barolo Cerequio 2013 and Barolo Villero 2013, we wanted to share the results of a great project with the tasters and journalists present, and at the same time, show how it is a perfect celebration of the “Boroli Taste”. Bright ruby red with light orange highlights and a clear-cut aroma with an initial liquorice note followed by fruitier ones, this “young Barolo” is the first in history to bear the name of the Boroli monopole Castiglione Falletto cru on its label. From the heart of the Langhe to the Lombardy region’s capital, we decided to complete the presentation of the new “king of wines” with award-winning chef Antonio Guida’s delicious dishes, and by gifting our guests with a copy...
