94pts Wine Enthusiast

Lovely aromas of forest berry, rose, wild herb and violet waft out of the glass along with a whiff of new leather. On the elegantly structured, almost ethereal palate, notes of star anise and clove accent juicy red cherry, pomegranate and blood orange. Polished tannins and bright acidity keep it balanced. Drink 2023–2030.

93pts James Suckling

Tightly packed, ripe red fruit and nutty spice on the nose. Full-bodied with the same compact character on the palate. The tannins are medium-grained and provide a good framework to the spicy fruit. This is all tightly packed. Give it a few years to unwind. Drink from 2024.

93pts Decanter

Another exception to the otherwise dilute character of Barolo 2018 at village level, most likely favoured by a blend from several selections. Liquorice and coffee grounds, leafy lightness and red currants mingle. The palate is graceful with a soft attack, ripe tannins, good citrus characters and crisp freshness - an overall crunchy style. Dusty yet not bitter on the finish.

92pts Wine Spectator

This red is packed with ripe, rich cherry and plum fruit. Reveals leather, tar and underbrush notes, which add depth as this plays out on the lingering aftertaste. This shows ample power for the vintage and an open texture, all coupled with good grip. Best from 2025.

Winemaker Notes

The wine is ruby red in color. It has a spicy nose reminiscent of pepper and licorice. Dry taste and persistent tannins.

Delicious with main courses of meat, braised meat, bacon and aged cheeses.

About the Vineyard

Giacomo Borgogno & Figli is considered a dynasty of Barolo. This historic house prides itself as being a harbinger of the traditional style. The estate was founded in 1761, although today the family cites 1848 as the date of official establishment, coinciding with a document dated 1848 that attests to Borgogno’s first wine sale. The vineyards, approximately 50 acres (20.25 ha) thereof, are found in the greatest sites within the Barolo commune including Liste, San Pietro delle Viole and Rue.
