Wine maker notes
Barolo “Chinato” is a unique aromatic wine produced with DOCG Barolo Nebbiolo wine infused with over twenty herb extracts, quinine(china bark), sugar and alcohol. It has a cherished tradition among the Piemontese, but is rare due to the limited and costly nature of its production. Boroli’s Chinato is produced applying their winemaker Enzo Alluvione’s distinct and secret family “recipe” using Boroli’s Nebbiolo wine from their estate Barolo vineyards. The color is ruby/violet in color with amber tones. The aroma is delicate yet pronounced, with aromas echoing the many herbs expertly prepared according to family tradition. On the palate it is very soft, round and persistent. It is pleasantly spicy and sweet but with a gently bitter aftertaste. At 16% alcohol it is traditionally served straight (at room temperature or slightly cool) as an after dinner drink, or “digestivo”. In this way, it makes for an excellent accompaniment to high cocoa content dark chocolate. It also can be used as an “aperitivo” when mixed with soda water and ice, or in place of sweet vermouth, Campari and the like.

Producer
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 medium-loamy 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.
