Boroli Barolo Classico DOCG 2012, Piedmont, Italy 75cl


Dry red wine, 75cl. Full bodied 100% Nebbiolo from Piedmont, Italy. 13.5% ABV. Vegetarian

A clear ruby red colour, with light orange reflections; a rather intense and classic aroma, with a slight scent of wood and presence of wild berries.  A lovely and harmonious taste with scents of liquorice and sweet tannins.

Tasting notes from the Wine Spectator

"Cherry, currant, menthol and earth flavors ride the vibrant structure in this sleek red. Shows more structure than fruit today. On the linear, compact side. Best from 2020 through 2033." 90/100 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.
