100% Barbera

Borgogno's Barbera d'Alba is a very intense ruby red. Vinous and persistent bouquet, which tends to be ethereal with moderate aging in the bottle.

Founded in 1761, Borgogno is the oldest continuously operating winery in Barolo. Cesare Borgogno expanded the winery’s production in the 1920s and commercial success followed as he became one of the first winemakers from Piedmont to ship wines abroad. He also implemented an impressive “wine library” at the estate. To this day, half of the Barolo production is held back, only to be released 20 years later.

The Farinetti family bought the estate in 2008. Under Andrea Farinetti’s leadership, organic conversion was initiated and the winery began using only cement vats for fermentation, a return to the original winemaking style. All the wines are made at the estate’s winemaking facility in Barolo village in an underground network of historic fermentation and aging rooms.

Made with long maceration times and minimal intervention, the wines are renowned for their traditional style and long-term aging potential, a favorite of Italian wine professionals and collectors.
