Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno

The Borgogno family has made wine in heart of the Barolo region since 1897

The estate is now run by the fourth generation, the daughters of Serio Borgogno, Anna Bolla and Paola Boffa and in turn their daughters, Emanuela Bolla, Federica Boffa, the cousins representing the fifth generation. Emanuela takes the lead on vineyards and winemaking with her father, Marco, while Federica concentrates on promoting the wine. The estate comprises 8 ha of vines, the main part being on the famous hill of Cannubi (of which they own one fifth), just outside of the town of Barolo. Here they have three vineyards – each with a different aspect – picking and fermenting the grapes separately and blending them according to the year. For their Riserva, however, they pick an individual vineyard. They also have a vineyard 20 minutes’ drive to the east, in Diano d’Alba. They grow grass between the rows of vines, use no herbicides and, for other treatments, employ mainly natural products in their bid to produce the healthiest grapes whilst safeguarding the biodiversity of their vineyards. They believe that their job in the cellars is to preserve the different characteristics of each vineyard. The Barolos are fermented in big wooden vats (tini) and matured in large Slavonian oak botti employing none of those untraditional barriques!  Emanuela summarises their philosophy thus, “Wine is the enthusiastic soul of the ones who produce it, the ones who know how to gather and transmit the authenticity of the land from which they come.

Vintage guide

A dry winter followed by a hot summer has certainly affected yields in 2022, but the quality looks excellent across the country. Small but perfectly formed seems to sum up the 2021 vintage here. Across most of the country the 2020 vintage is looking very good indeed with ripe fruit and lovely aromatics. A classic if not straight forward vintage 2019 has delivered some excellent wines but in smaller quantity. Overall, the results are very good in 2018, though a warm wet early summer led to disease pressures in many parts of the country. The Northeast, home to Prosecco amongst others did particularly well; so too did Tuscany and Piedmont but yields were a little down in some estates. 2017 saw a small crop of excellent wines; spring frosts and a later heatwave nicknamed ‘Lucifer’ reduced yields, but you’ll find good results on the whole with excellent results in Piedmont. Yields were down in 2016 but quality is high, Piedmont and Tuscany at least as good as 2015. 2015 is generally an excellent vintage across Italy, perhaps reds having the edge over whites. A year that necessitated a lot of work in the vineyards due to the rains, 2014 produced some surprisingly good results with elegant fresh wines across the country.
