Three shades of Barolo: Cerequio, Villero & Brunella

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 slight woody feel, this Barolo is well structured with a long finish, intense ruby red in colour and a fruity fragrance with a delicate note of chamomile.

 

Barolo DOCG Villero – a Pure Expression of Castiglione Falletto

Powerful, tannic and mineral the Barolo Villero born in the heart of the Langhe from one of the most prestigious cru in the small municipality of Castiglione Falletto.

The floral aroma from this fine wine slowly opens, liberating spicy notes which matched with a vivid ruby red colour and a full and persistent taste defines the identity of this Barolo which is intended to last and reach its maximum potential over time.

 

Barolo DOCG Brunella – a Unique and Important Name

Brunella, a cru singular to the Boroli family, is synonymous with elegance, power and balance.

The ruby red colour seems alive with clear light orange reflections. A sharp perfume in which a liquorice note stands out, followed by a turn to more fruity scents that slowly take over.

The tasty, fresh and harmonious taste has a long, persistent long aftertaste of wood, making this Barolo the perfect encounter between Villero and Cerequio.
