The Borolis are a Piedmontese family who have been in business in the region - first in textiles, and now in winegrowing - since 1831. Boroli is comprised of two estates: Cascina Bompe, in a small village just outside of Alba with its own winery and La Brunella in the heart of Barolo in Castiglione Falletto. In addition to the vineyards above, the property includes Villero and Borgata Cerequio both considered two of the Langhe’s great cru vineyards. Each vineyard has a particular terrior - La Brunella has a mostly mediumloamy chalk soil with sand veins, and east to south, southwesterly and west exposures. The Villero exposition is south-southwest and the soil is a moisture-retaining mix of marl, clay and silt. Borgata Cerequio faces south and southeast on limestone and sand soil, at an altitude of 900 feet above sea level. The estate’s director is the winemaker Enzo Alluvione, who is assisted by his son Daniele in the vineyards. The estate’s consultant is the noted winemaker Beppe Caviola who was chosen a Gambero Rosso’s Winemaker of the Year in 2002.

Wine maker notes
Wine produced with dolcetto grapes. The colour is deep ruby red with purple tints while the bouquet displays sweet fruity aromas such as violet, marasca, wild blackberry. This wine is consistent and mature and it offers a harmonious and complex balance of tannins and a good acidity, followed by a long appealing finish with typical hints of almond. It is ready for drinking but it can be kept in the cellar for a few years. It is matured in steel for 6-9 months and refined in bottle for 6 months; the serving temperature is 16-17C and it is served with first courses and feathered game.
