Boroli Barbera d'Alba 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes : The color is very intense, ruby red. On the nose it offers aromas of ripe forest fruits and undertones of vanilla while on the palate this wine is close-texture, mouth-filling with aromas of ripe raspberries and blackberries.There is a nice balance of acidity alcohol and tannins followed by a long-appealing finish.

Cascina Bompè The history of this magical place is interesting: the Celts who inhabited the area since the 4th century AD worshipped amongst others “Como”, the god of feasts; the Romans arrived during the first century AD and the name “Como” came to mean a procession of young dancers in honours of the wine god Bacchus...

Cascina Bompè The history of this magical place is interesting: the Celts who inhabited the area since the 4th century AD worshipped amongst others “Como”, the god of feasts; the Romans arrived during the first century AD and the name “Como” came to mean a procession of young dancers in honours of the wine god Bacchus... The Borolis are a piedmontese family who have been in business in the region – first in textiles, then editorial, and now in winegrowing – since 1831. In the 1990’s, Silavano ed Elena Boroli felt the need to extend their interest and endeavours. They wanted something that would bring them closer to nature and away from the demands of the contemporary business world. As Piedmontese, the choice was almost an obligation: making wine in Langa. A passion transformed into work. What could be better? Wine production isn’t the easiest work it’s consuming, subject to nature, and success can’t always be predicted. But it’s exactly for these reasons that success in this area can give great satisfaction. In 2000 Achille, the third of the four Boroli sons entered the family wine business. The culture of wine, includes many things besides the wine itself. In the Boroli’s case, quality is always the common denominator, in their role as wine producers as well as the product itself. The farm director is the oenologist Enzo Alluvione, assisted by his son Daniele for the vineyards and by Achille Boroli for the marketing and selling. The farm consultant is the oenologist Beppe Caviola. The vines grown are nebbiolo, barbera, merlot, cabernet, sauvignon, dolcetto, white moscato and chardonnay, following the guiot standard of vine raising. 5,000-7,000 kilograms of grapes are produced per hectare, with an average of 1,5 kilos per vinestock and a density of around 4,000 vinestocks per hectare. Cascina La Brunella This farm is situated in the municipality of Castiglione Falletto, at the heart of Barolo country, in a very panoramic hilly position, at a height of 318 metres above sea level. The property is made up of around 10 hectares. The soil is mainly a medium loamy chalk with sand veins with an east to south, south-westerly exposure and west exposure. Read less

from epicurious:"Barbera is Italy's most food-friendly red wine type: It's a classic, light-on-its-feet red, able to dance around complicated food-matching problems. Boroli is a small, high-quality producer that houses a hotel and Michelin-starred restaurant called Locanda del Pilone. So the owners clearly know their wine and food. This bottle hails from the grape's true home, the Piedmont region in the northern section of the country. The cherry and raspberry flavors are crisp, not flabby, and there's a lovely lingering finish."

Light and somewhat fruity wine which goes perfectly with pasta dishes.

Helles jugendliches Rubinrot. Schöne rote Frucht, blumig – erinnert an Tulpen und Rosen und auch etwas an grünlich-pflanzliche Noten. Im Gaumen frisch, lebendig, mit feiner Gerbstoffstruktur, sehr floral wieder. Unkomplizierter, sehr gefälliger Barbera,
