The Orange Label: Extremely fine and complex, Floral and mineral fragrances and a whole weave of spicy threads. In the mouth it delivers a bitter and pleasurable freshness, along with hyperactive tannins restrained by an important alcohol phase. A persistent finale then completes the bodily mouthfeel of this wine, whose unique taste textures stem from its aging in oak barrels and then in the bottle. Try it with your favourite dishes, desserts, especially when they feature chocolate.
About the producer: Borgogno is the family name behind one of the oldest wine-making houses in Piedmont: ever since its foundation in 1761, the incontestably superb quality of the company's products has justified its extraordinary reputation. One demonstration of this status is the choice of Barolo Borgogno for the grand official lunch celebrating the unification of Italy in 1861, and for the 1886 banquet in honour of Tsar Nicholas II Romanov, guest of Italy's reigning Savoy family. Today as then, its meticulously skilled traditional vinification process – now enhanced by modern equipment – endows Borgogno's wines with exceptional complexity and structure, making them an authentic expression of their territorial heritage.
