Wine produced with nebbiolo grapes coming from the historic vineyard Cerequio in the municipality of Barolo. This vineyard is classified as one of the best cru (1st category). The colour is deep ruby with garnet tints. The bouquet is extremely rich and complex, with notes where are dominant liquorice, goudron and truffle; on the palate the powerful structure and tannins emerge as guarantee of a long ageing of the wine. It is matured in cask for 24 months and refined in bottle for 12 months. Serving temperature is 19-20°C and it can be served with important roast meat dishes, feathered game, ripe and strong cheeses.
It is excellent also after meal as meditation wine.
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.
