Barolo Brunate DOCG 2010 - Francesco Borgogno

October 4, 2011
A wine of great elegance and personality, Barolo is known in Italy and abroad as the “king of wines” for the breadth of its perfumes and its ability to improve over time. Thanks to its longevity it can be good even after twenty/thirty years.
This piedmontese red wine was born with the Falletti noble family of Barolo (small town on the Langhe hill’s in the Cuneo province), which began the production in the 19th century.

In the Borgogno Winery  is produced the Barolo Brunate d.o.c.g. 2010

Vinified exclusively using Nebbiolo grapes, this great red wine acquires complexity and richness of fragrance with a minimum of three years aging in Slavonian wooden barrels plus a further refinement of two years in bottle.
It is dense and firm, dark garnet red in color with light orange nuances.
Full of fruity and flowery aromas including blackberries, cherries, violet with delicate spicy notes such as licorice, cocoa and leather, evident as a result of aging.
The taste is dry and well structured, clean and soft, thanks to the good balance of tannin-alcohol level.

Get the right glasses (balloon type) for its tasting, let it breath for one hour in the right decanter to allow the storage of waste and the escape of perfumes, and serve it at a middle temperature of 18-20 degrees.

Although excellent as a sipping wine, Barolo, because of its complexity, can be very well combined with strong cheese and tasty dishes made of red meat or game in general, such as roasts, stews, wild boar, boiled, braised duck,  chamois meat, rabbit, roasted kid or try it with its braised, without any doubt the best combination ever!

Enjoy it!
