  • Barolo is the “King” of Italian wines. Its crown, however, has changed during the past 50 years or so. Italy’s wine laws went into effect in the mid-1960’s. At that time Barolo was a DOC wine. There were 3 categories: DOC Regular (Normale), DOC Riserva, and DOC Riserva Speciale. Two years of aging in cask and 13% alcohol was required by all thre... Read More

  • Borgogno Barolo Cannubi 2008


    Tight and compressed sweet/sour cherry shows over a base note of old wood spice on the nose. Aromatically this is a bit tarry and heavy. The bit darkly fruited entry is a bit matte, showing some plummy fruit and sweet candy accents, with nice austere tannins, spicy and a bit spicy on the palate, though dry and tough through the long finish. A l... Read More

  • All this Wine talk over the passed couple days (yes mylady Amour and James it's all your fault LOL) gave me a sudden urge to check my wine cellar and, low and behold, I still had 3 bottles of Barolo I had bought (if I recall correctly from Royal Coffee in Pattaya) 4 or 5 years ago.For some strange reason I really quite felt in the mood for a nic...

  • Giacomo Borgogno & Figli Barolo Riserva 1952


    The nose was lively with pretty floral aromatics, dried berries and masses of rose with floral undergrowth. On the palate, sweet red berries with a touch of cinnamon stick washed vibrantly against the senses with inner floral notes lasting through the finish. This was a beautiful performance for this wine.

    Wine review by luca chevalier

  • Giacomo Borgogno & Figli Dolcetto d'Alba 2009


    The Borgogno Dolcetto dAlba 2007 showed damp earth, with black olives, truffle and ripe plum on the nose. Very rustic in style on the palate, and certainly showed more fruit after a bit of vigorous swirling in the glass. A mix of savory and earthy qualities, eventually revealing blackberry, plum, a hint of ripe raspberry, old wood, with a certai... Read More

  • Giacomo Borgogno & Figli Barolo Riserva 1964


    Tarry and dark on the nose with notes of creosote, leather, and scorched earth over dark slightly dried black cherry fruit. Rich and thick in the mouth with prominent, austere tannins giving this a tough edge. there's plenty of sweet fruit and good supporting acids but this comes off as a bit clumsy, big and blocky. May improve but I don't think... Read More
