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 of the book “Brunella. The birth of a Barolo cru”, written by the expert pen of former chef and now food and wine journalist, Alan Tardi.

Despite its young age, this novice Barolo has a fascinating history, which just like its taste, it lets you discover a little at a time.
