Amount of sulfites: at least 60% less than the extent permitted by law.
THE ORIGIN: it comes from our best Crus that give us the true traditional Barolo: CANNUBI, LISTE and FOSSATI, three single vineyards located in the district of Barolo.
Characteristics: this wine is a clear garnet red of medium intensity, marked by brick-colored highlights. It has a heady and particularly intense bouquet with the scent of ripe fruit. It is dry, full and robust in taste, yet velvety and well balanced. This is indubitably a wine for winter specialties and is particularly suited for the cuisine of areas with a colder climate that require a high-calorie diet.
Aging: it ages at least four years in large oak barrels, which enhance the balance between elegance and power of the classic Barolo from Barolo.
Food Match: roasts, stews, game, fondue, hard aged cheese. It should be served at 18-20°C and should be uncorked or poured into a carafe at least two hours before serving.
Information About Borgogno - Vino Libero MORE NATURE, FEWER CHEMICALS. Barolo: the heart of the zone producing wine of the same name. Barolo is a small town creating one of the world’s greatest wines. Here, the wine making tradition can be found in every moment of life. For centuries, the soil has displayed its calling; it is apparent in the soil of the clayey limestone marl, in the fortunate exposure, in the altitude and in the climate the elements that make this area the terrain for Piemonte vintages. However, nature alone is not enough: careful and patient work is required due to the difficult nature of harvesting the vines, a precious art that allows large grapes to be grown each year. Borgogno, following a code of absolute environmental friendliness, treats its grapes in the very best methods; no chemical fertilisers used, only sustainable treatments used. This hard work results in a clean grape, free of residues, essential for producing quality wines. The Borgogno countryside covers 20 hectares, 4 of which are forest and 16 are vineyards. Around 60% is farmed at Nebbiolo, the remaining land is divided between Dolcetto and Barbera. Cannubi, Connubi San Lorenzo, Fossati, Liste and San Pietro Delle Viole are some of the best vintages of Barolo.
