Francesco Borgogno

Via Crosia, 29, Barolo CN

The Barolo of the famous Brunate “cru” in a historic family cellar. In such a symbolic area within the territory of the Barolo production, at the very crossroad between the historical hill of Cannubi and Brunate, you will find the Borgogno Francesco company. Founded at the beginning of 1930s, this is a traditional family-run farmhouse. It produces wine exclusively from its own vineyards, located in one of the best position of La Morra represented by the “cru” of Brunate. The company makes use of its expertise in wines in order to obtain the best quality according to tradition and environmental protection. Since the very beginning of this adventure, the process has been based on few simple rules because the aim is to preserve all the traditional steps for the production of genuine wines. The love and the passion for this land and these vineyards has been handed down for three generations from father to son and today the company is run by the two sons of Francesco Borgogno: Giancarlo and Claudio and daughter-in-law Silvia, who together follow every step of the production and sale… from vineyard to bottle. Besides Barolo the company also produces wines like Dolcetto d’Alba, Barbera d’Alba and Langhe Nebbiolo. The wine is produced in the Barolo cellar with traditional pressing and fermentation with the presence of the skins in the mix for about thirty days. The whole process for the production of our Barolo Brunate is strictly traditional, with a quite long maceration followed by a long period of refinement (about two years) in oak barrels (30 or 50 hectolitres). Finally, before the sale, the wine rests in bottles for about twelve months. Instead of using barriques, the company prefers using the classic methods with big barrels. This wine can be appreciated just a few months after it has been bottled, but it gets better and better and develops its own elegance with age. The company is always available to tour its guests in the cellar to taste wines and traditional products such as cheese and cold cuts. Italian or foreign groups should book in advance.
