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

The 2007 Barolo is a pretty, seamless wine that captures the personality of the year in its ripe, juicy cherries, spices and crushed flowers. Tobacco, leather and licorice develop in the glass, adding further complexity and nuance. This doesn't look to be a long-term ager, but as long as readers drink their bottles within the next few years that shouldn't be too much of an issue. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015.

Tasting Notes:

Wine produced with nebbiolo grapes, typical red garnet colour. The bouquet is elegant with hints of red mature fruits, leather, tobacco and sensations of oak, while on the palate the powerful structure emerges with a long persistent finish. It is a long-tasting wine matured in cask and barrique for 24 months and refined in bottle for 18 months. Serving temperature is 19-20°C and it is served with read meats, ripe-strong cheeses. It is excellent also after meal.
