Barolo
Cerequio

Grape variety

Only a few producers have the honor to bottling the Cerequio Cru. The vineyard stretches across two opposing slopes, which together create an easily recognizable basin. The area is characterized by an extraordinary microclimate: called “Riviera delle Langhe” by the veterans.
The area is magnificently exposed, with a constant ventilation that keeps the grapes healthy. The soil is sandy with abundant moisture content and clay. The quality of wine is incredibly unvaried: each year, the vineyard gives us a great Barolo wine for ageing, thanks to its acidity and vibrant structure. Boroli’s Barolo Cerequio stands for elegance and refinement.

Vinification

The Barolo Cerequio harvest takes place in the first days of October and is carried out entirely by hand, with grapes collected in small crates.
The vineyards are divided into micro-parcels based on the ripeness of the clusters. Separate harvests are conducted while always maintaining perfect uniformity of the grapes. This allows for the production of multiple cuvées for each parcel.

This separation is maintained throughout the vinification and aging process. In stainless steel tanks, the fermentation of all the micro-cuvées occurs first, followed by submerged cap maceration: the grape skins are kept submerged at about 40-50 cm, at a controlled temperature for a medium to long period, up to 30 days.

After at least 18 months of aging in wood, the different micro-cuvées are expertly blended. In the months of June and July, the wine is bottled, where it remains until the following year before being released to the market.

The
Cerequio Cru

The unique Barolo Cerequio vineyard is located in the municipality of Barolo, with a south/south-east exposure, at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level. The area is characterized by an extraordinary microclimate, ideal for developing and enhancing the best qualities of the vineyard; proof of this is that the snow melts quickly, and the elder have given this location the nickname “Langhe Riviera“.

The nature of the soil is clayey with blue marls and moderately sandy limestone. The Barolo Cerequio (already classified as a first-class Cru) has earned the designation of  “chosen area” for Barolo wine production in the 19th century, as recognized by Lorenzo Fantini, a renowned agronomist.
