technical profile

It was born about 11 million years ago by erosion of the overlying soils. A soil rich in calcareous marl and clay, with a good presence of sand. What makes the difference here, and what makes this cru special, is the presence of a truffle forest. The completeness of elements in the soil, combined with a colder microclimate, almost 2 °C (35 °F) lower than the average of the area, recall the terroir of the oldest part of the Langhe. The result is a wine characterized by incomparable complexity, longevity and verticality. An extraordinary cru easily visible from the hairpin bends of the road that leads from Barolo to the Castello della Volta. Liste is that Barolo whose power and austerity recalls in its textures a Barolo from the ancient part of the Langa, where the longest-lived wines are born. The Barolo Liste Riserva clearly represents the austerity and discretion of Borgogno. A wine that comes from a selection in the vineyard and which, after a long refinement in large Slavonian oak barrels, ages for many years in the bottle, in the historic cellars that wind under the historic center of Barolo. A production that takes place only in the best years to give life to a wine of great concentration and power. The legend of Barolo.

how to serve it

Borgogno is one of the most historic Barolos, with a classic and natural style. These precious bottles may have very light sediments, decanting is possible if desired, but only a few minutes before serving.

perfect pairing

Barolo par excellence goes well with important dishes, such as traditional Piedmontese meat main courses. Ranging through world traditions we find in the United States of America beef (angus, nostral ox, longhorn) in various cuts such as Baltimore pit beef. Going to Brazil the picanha. Some recipes are for example coffee or chocolate picanha. After a few years of aging in the bottle, it is perfect for meditation, combined with a piece of good dark chocolate. But if you have the pleasure, even a simple "special" toast is perfect!
