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. This is not just a Barolo, it is much more. It fully reflects the elegance and the power of a real Barolo from the Village of Barolo. We don't want to recommend a "perfect" food - wine pairing, because everyone has personal ideas and tastes. We know better who you should have this wine with, anyone!

Silky and smooth, this poised red opens with aromas of woodland berry, forest floor and camphor. It's savory and polished, offering flavors of juicy black cherry and licorice with a hint of hazelnut before finishing on a note of blood orange. Lithe tannins and fresh acidity keep it balanced. It's already accessible, but will also age well for several years. Drink through 2026.

A mix of cherry, plum, rose, licorice, tar and tobacco highlights this textbook Barolo. It's vibrant and has grip, with balance and muscle to keep it focused, and the potential for a long future. Excellent length. Best from 2024 through 2043. 2,500 cases made, 945 cases imported.

The 2016 Barolo has aromas of raspberry leather, smoke, and tar. The palate is savory, tangy, and mineral rich, with sour cherry, walnut, and iron. The 2016 is clean with a rustic edge and would be great at the table. Drink 2023-2036. Reviewed By: Audrey Frick.

The Borgogno 2016 Barolo wears a light and delicate fabric with a lacework of detailed and subtle aromas. Nothing is too big or too bold in this wine that adopts a genuine and traditional approach to Nebbiolo. Indeed, it could be criticized for coming in so far under the intensity threshold, especially for a classic vintage such as this. Soft cherry and cassis segue to spice, smoke, rusty nail and licorice. The wine should flesh out with more cellaring.

The 2016 Barolo is a very pretty and expressive wine. Crushed red berry, mint, cinnamon and a touch of orange zest grace this mid-weight, super-expressive Barolo from Borgogno. All the elements are so well balanced. This is very nicely done.
