"Tar, orange peel and strawberry aromas follow through to a full body with chewy and powerful tannins and a long and flavorful finish. A structured and intense wine. Don't miss this. Crazy quality for a straight up Barolo blend. Much better in 2021." (JS)

Winery Notes:
The Borgogno family has owned vineyards in Barolo since 1720, and have always attached particular importance to the work carried out in the vineyards and the selection of only the best grapes. The Virna label was created in 2001, when Virna Borgogno became proprietor of her family’s estate. Today the estate stretches out over an area of around 12 hectares, producing wines from grapes grown on its own vineyards located in historic crus in the Barolo wine-making area. Though the wines are from different crus, each one represents the heritage and tradition of the Barolo region. This Barolo DOCG is made of Nebbiolo sourced from the crus Merli in Novello, San Giovanni in Monforte d’Alba, and Sottocastello di Novello. The Lampia clone is used.
