2019 Borgogno Barbera d'Alba, Piedmont, Italy

Intense ruby red color in the glass with a persistent vinous fragrance in the nose almost ethereal, with moderate bottle aging. Dry and with a pleasantly bitter edge encircling plum and cherry fruit and floral notes.



Following a manual harvest of Barbera grapes in the vineyards in Madonna di Como (Alba), in the cellar the grapes are destemmed and pressed. This is followed by a spontaneous fermentation in large concrete tanks, at a temperature between 22°C and 28°c for about 10 days. This is followed by a soft pressing and ageing into large oak barrels for 4 months and subsequent passage in stainless steel tanks. Then 3 months of aging in bottle.


Since 1761, 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. We cultivate our vineyards in Barolo, Madonna di Como and in the Colli Tortonesi. With absolute respect for the earth, Borgogno does not use any chemical fertilisers or herbicides, and practice only eco-friendly treatments. Borgogno is certified organic from the 2019 vintage forward. Today, Borgogno continues to be the expression of a territory and of tradition and history, always with a watchful eye on the future.
