Boroli Barolo Classico DOCG 2012
"Cherry, currant, menthol and earth flavors ride the vibrant structure in this sleek red... Best from 2020 through 2033." 90/100 Points - The Wine Spectator
Boroli Barolo Cerequio DOCG 2012
"The 2012 Barolo Cerequio offers praiseworthy elegance that is made more evident thanks to the wine's solid structure. Polished aromas of wild berry, anise seed, dried ginger, tar and licorice combine to give the wine a lasting sense of aromatic lift and buoyancy. The mouthfeel follows with a tight and streamlined approach. Boroli has achieved beautiful results in the Cerequio cru..." 92/100 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Boroli Barolo Villero DOCG 2012
"Very different from the Cerequio Barolo, the 2012 Barolo Villero delivers its elegance with distinctive flair. The Villero cru is known for structured wines, but this expression offers unique silkiness and smoothness. The fruit flavors play long on the palate with lingering tones of cassis, dried cranberry, licorice and balsam herb. Indian spice, tar and ash are also part of the wine’s inner-workings." 92/100 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Boroli family is a family of entrepreneurs, with roots in Piedmont dating back to as early as 1831. The family did not embark in the winemaking business until 1997, when Silvano and Elena Boroli felt an ardent desire to step away from the pressures of their publishing business and reconnect to nature. Silvano and Elena grew the company until their son, Achille, stepped in to run the wine-growing and production business in 2012.
Achille grew up studying wine by experiencing every level of the winemaking process in a tactile and sensory manner. For years, he shadowed the winemaker at his family’s winery, tasting samples from every barrel, touching every bunch of grapes, smelling every oak barrique, until he developed an intuition. That intuition, paired with precise vineyard management and winemaking techniques, are the tools Achille uses to make wines of the highest quality today.
With the 2012 grape harvest Achille decided to radically change the methods used in vineyards and wineries, aiming for the highest quality in Barolo and its crus. He cut production levels, updated the winemaking technology, and focused on low intervention methods to raise the quality of the Boroli wines be on par with the finest Barolo wines.
