This Barolo Riserva DOCG Borgogno harvest was an exceptional vintage in terms of climatic conditions. From January to May there were no precipitations except for some frost that thinned out the production. Variable weather in June, hot weather in July broken by frequent storms. Same weather for the first part of August and then good climatic conditions and hot sun till the end of November. Winemaking: regular fermentation and submerged cap maceration; racking off at the end of September. Ageing: four years in big Slavonian oak barrels. Bottling: May 2002.
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.
