Azienda Agricola Virna Borgogno

The Borgogno estate comprises 12 hectares of vineyards rich in history and renowned for quality. Located immediately north of the village of Barolo, it has been the family home of Lodovico and his daughters Virna and Ivana Borgogno, since 1720. 60,000 bottles are produced annually, 70% of which is Barolo.

The most prized vineyards are the ‘cru’ Sarmassa and Cannubi-Boschis. ‘Village’ Barolo as well as classically styled Barbera &Dolcetto d’Alba and more moder Langhe Rosso come from a variety of small vineyard holdings throughout the district. A new cellar was completed in time for the 2005 vintage. From the 1950s, Lodovico began introducing newpractices in order to extract the highest possible quality from his vineyards. In 2001 Virna became the owner & winemaker, recognized by theaddition of her name to the estate. Now, she and her sister Ivana honour the tradition of Barolo while highlighting their wines’ qualities with modern winemaking methods. A variety of large oakis used for aging, with the intention of capturing thesubtlety and texture of Nebbiolo, not simply raw power. Not meaing to sound cliché, but these are indeed very feminine, very expressive wines taut, aromatic, ethereal Barolo.
