Producer:Giacomo Borgogno & Figli
Region:Italy / Piedmont / Langhe / Barolo/ Barolo


This bottle was in the best condition of the line-up. Great balance. Not only the façade is sophisticated, intricate and extremely pleasing, but also, underneath it, is the masterpiece of a frame. Ripe, but assertive tannins. Super acidity. Elegant. Clean lines. The fruit is more present, which provides a better balance to the secondary and tertiary aromas and adds in perceived complexity. The color is clean, saturated and is deep enough to really surprise if this is the first old Barolo of such kind for you. This one also had signs of slight daydreaming or mild absentmindedness. An endearing imperfection, but at this age it separates the good one from great ones.
