Dry red wine, 75cl. Full bodied 100% Nebbiolo from Piedmont, Italy. 14.0% ABV. Vegetarian
Clear bright ruby colour with very light garnet red reflections; intense and persistent aroma of red fruit with notes of plum and cherry. A pleasant aroma of wood is noticeable after the fruity aroma, anticipating the full taste of a great wine suitable for long lasting life. A succulent, rich, full-bodied and pleasant taste emerges after the woody one, with the presence of slightly ripe red fruit.
Tasting notes from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"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, despite a vintage that saw sporadic hail storms and difficult summer heat spikes."92/100 Points
Producer Profile Boroli
Founded by a Piedmontese family of entrepreneurs in the 1990s who decided to turn their passion into their livelihood, the Boroli estate is now run by 2nd generation, Achille Boroli. The ten hectares of vines are spread across the three areas of Castiglione Falletto, Barolo and La Morra. Boroli’s winemaking philosophy is that “a great wine is the result of a great vineyard and a great terroir.” Tremendous efforts are taken in the vineyards, including carefully controlling densities, organic fertilisation, turfing and green harvesting. All of the production takes place in Boroli’s new state of the art winery, Cascina La Brunella. The family also owns and operates a boutique hotel and a 1 star Michelin restaurant called La Locanda Del Pilone.
