The wines are produced sustainably.
In the glass, this Barbera is ruby red with purple hues. The nose is full and ripe with plum and cherry fruit with an undertone of coffee and cocoa. On the palate, this medium-bodied wine has a nice creamy mouthfeel with flavors of blackberry, tobacco, cherry, soft tannins. This Borgogno barbera d'Alba has a fruity, long finish and is a delicious accompaniment to roast pork and stewed chicken. The wine has received a rating of 8.5 in the great Hammersma.
“We have a plumber and his name is Tuinman. And a fisherman who listens to the name Schilder. And then we have winemaker Borgogno who lives in Piemonte. Fortunately, the north of Italy is also known for its great wines. And Giacomo Borgogno lives up to his name and that of Piedmontese red. To start with this example-Barbera. Delicious ripe, yet sour cherries. Blackberries too. Pleasant acidity as well as a fine aceto balsamic. Nice bitters. Sincere, honest and delicious.”
