Borgogno Barolo Riserva 2003

Garnet red colour in the glass, this Barolo has a complex and fruit-forward nose layered with aromas of wood, spice, resin and tobacco. Full-bodied and warm, it displays a smooth, silky finish.

Giacomo Borgogno & Figli is considered a dynasty of Barolo. This historic house prides itself as being a harbinger of the traditional style. The estate was founded in 1761, although today the family cites 1848 as the date of official establishment, coinciding with a document dated 1848 that attests to Borgogno’s first wine sale. The vineyards, approximately 50 acres (20.25 ha) thereof, are found in the greatest sites within the Barolo commune - including Liste, Fossati and San Pietro.

Especially notable is Borgogno’s library collection of older-vintage Barolo, one they’ve diligently safeguarded since before WWII. The family continues the practice of cellaring considerable amounts of wine from the very best vintages even today. They periodically re-release, providing the rare opportunity to enjoy perfectly cellared, historic-vintage Barolo. This is truly the best way to understand how traditional Barolo was meant to be experienced.
