The Borolis are gaining an excellent reputation for deep, evocative Barolo of classic depth and stature. Villero is their magic cru from which an intensity and depth is harnessed that suggests there is always more to come, even after 10 years’. Regular Barolo, also from Castiglione Falletto vineyards, is very good too (50% in large casks, 50% in used barriques). Barbera takes two forms, complex and composed in Bricco dei Fagiani, more direct yet fruit-rich in Quattro Fratelli. The Borolis’ Dolcetto has real style too, both supple and expressive with classic bright fruit and a seamless structure. Inexpensive Langhe Rosso, Anna is a Nebbiolo/Barbera blend while Langhe Chardonnay, Bel Amì is also produced.
