Borgogno e Figli Barolo
Description: The 2012 Barolo sees fruit sourced from various spots around the Barolo township. This is a classic expression with a tight tannic structure and good tension in terms of mouthfeel. This was a hot vintage, with concentrated heat at the height of the summer. This forced a slightly shorter growing season and the bouquet is consequently less nuanced and complex next to the slightly cooler years. Yet the results achieved here are graceful and fine. This a good alternative for near and medium-term drinking. Wine Advocate - June 2017 Monica Larner - 90 points

Wine Enthusiast - 91pts
This opens with earthy-almost funky-aromas of game, truffle, leather, a hint of overripe dark-skinned fruit and a balsamic note. The palate offers black cherry, crushed
raspberry, cinnamon and chopped herb alongside ripe tannins. An anise note closes the finish.
