Since 1761, Borgogno is the most historical winery in Barolo. The underground cellars continue to represent a rare historical memory of the Langa to this day, and the wines are made according to tradition: long spontaneous fermentations in concrete tanks without the use of selected yeasts, and long periods of ageing, strictly in large Slavonian oak barrels. The winery cultivates the vineyards in Barolo, Madonna di Como and in the Colli Tortonesi. With absolute respect for the earth, with no no chemical fertilisers and no herbicides, and practice only eco-friendly treatments. This led in our being certified as organic for the 2019 harvest. Today, Borgogno continues to be the expression of a territory and of tradition and history, always with a watchful eye on the future.
Intense yellow, very clear and consistent. It is intense and complex on the nose: in the early years there are fruity smells reminiscent of pear, peach and floreal smells such as acacia flowers and hawthorn and mineral notes. The honey note is very typical of this wine. In the mouth, the Derthona is a dry, warm and sof wine with a good match between high levels of alcohol and high content in organic acids. It has no edges but the texture is balanced and very persistent.
