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.

  • Boroli Barolo 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Was a little dry to start with. Definitely needs to sit in a cellar a bit. Still a nice wine with some dark and light fruits to play around with. A little tannic and acidic but that will soften up with age. In a few years I will give this one a better glass rating. Read More
