About
Spontaneous fermentation carried out by indigenous yeasts for about 12 days in concrete tanks, controlled temperature (22 – 25 C initially, 29-30 at the end ), followed by submerged cup maceration for 30 days, stable temperature 29 C. After the racking off, the malolactic fermentation starts, and it lasts about 15 days at
22 C. Ageing: 4 years in Slavonian oak casks (4500L) with a further refining in bottle for 6 mounths. This is the classic, traditional “Formula” used by the ancient Barolo Families to produce a Barolo which embraces and melts each of the peculiar characters of the different vineyards and terroirs of the Barolo area. The Barolo Classic Borgogno is made by the combination of the grapes coming from five of the most prestigious vineyards of the Barolo area: Cannubi, Cannubi San Lorenzo, Fossati, Liste, San Pietro delle Viole.

Gary Walsh, The WineFront

Red fruits, star anise, roses, aromatic herbs. It’s medium-bodied, kind of pretty, but appropriately firm. Lovely tussle between quiet succulence of fruit and tannin, ideal freshness, and a long finish with just a little blood orange coming through. So classic. Love this.
