Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno is an old school estate that is back on the rise in Piedmont. One of the oldest estates in Piedmont and the first estate on the now famed Cannubi hill. The estate has always remained in the family, but current owner and winemaker Emanuela has been steadily taking this historic estate to new highs.
Color: Ruby with garnet highlights.
Bouquet: The nose is characterised by a triumph of aromatic and medicinal herbs. It then expands towards wild berries and spicy hints.
Flavor: Fresh and balanced on the palate with silky and persistent tannins.
The 2018 Barolo is delicate and fine. It shows a very clean and hands-off approach in which the grape is put front and center. Tart berry, cassis, licorice and dusty earth emerge from the bouquet. On the palate, the wine is silky and long with just enough tannic detailing to keep it tight and focused. This Barolo should drink nicely up to the 10 or 15-year mark.
