Despite being one of the oldest Barolo producers dating back to 1761, Giacomo Borgogno is a producer to watch as the current generation of Cesare & Giorgio Borgogno take the domaine forward. Located in the prized village of Barolo, their 20 hectare estate draw on vines from the surrounding crus of Cannubi, Liste (a monopole), Rue, Fossati & San Pietro. Vinification is essentially traditional, although more care is now taken to vinify parcel by parcel in small stainless-steel cuves to retain the fruit's integrity & to capture the terroir's identity. Elevage is in comparatively youthful Slavonian barrels. Giacomo Borgogno are particularly famous for their library of older vintages, immaculately stored in their cellars. Indeed Borgogno must rate as one of the first to have bottled their Barolo, including the 1861 which was served at the official banquet celebrating Italian unity.
