2016 Borgogno ‘No Name’ Nebbiolo
Ruby red color with purple highlights. Ethereal, persistent with violet, rose, fresh fruits and spicy hints on the nose. A dry, harmonius, velvety, full-bodied wine, austere and generous wine. Because this wine doesn’t meet the exact requirements of Barolo, the wine maker aptly named it ‘No Name’.

ABOUT THE WINERY
In 1761 Bartolomeo Borgogno establishes the winery. In 1920 Cesare Borgogno takes over management of the winery, changing its fortunes. He begins exporting the wines abroad, to Argentina, Europe and the United States. He has the great intuition to forget half of the production of Barolo Riserva in the cellar, selling it only twenty years later. In 1972 a bottle of 1886 vintage Borgogno Barolo goes under the hammer at the historical wine auction held in Turin for the sum of 530,000 lira. An absolute record for the time and the highest figure ever reached by any Italian wine. Today the winery is owned by the Farinetti family acquires the winery, firmly committed to strictly following traditions.
