Borgogno is one of the very first and probably oldest wineries in Piedmont. The Italian winery strongly believes in the classical and traditional philosophy, which is its strength; For years, the observance of these traditions has been passed on to subsequent generations. Borgogno owns 13 hectares of vineyards, 9 of which are planted with the Nebbiolo grape. The wines are all vinified in traditional ways to produce unique and structured wines. The wines are produced sustainably.

The name No Name of this beautiful Nebbiolo certainly has a deeper meaning. To guarantee the quality of the wine in Italy and therefore also in Piedemonte, the wines are extensively checked by the authorities. Borgogno discovered that this can lead to bureaucracy when they submitted their Barolo a few years ago to be allowed to bear the 'Barolo DOCG' designation. The harvest was bottled in stages and each time a bottle was sent in for inspection. The first two bottles were approved, the third bottle was rejected. Because all three bottles contained exactly the same contents, it was decided to bottle the wines under the name 'No Name'. The addition 'Etichetta di Protesta' is a reference to bureaucracy. After this harvest they continued making this wine. Borgogno No Name meets the required maturation of a Barolo of at least three years, two years of which in wooden barrels. “

The Borgogno No Name is not that rebellious at all, but it is extremely tasty. The No Name is powerful, dark, ripe tannins and a relaxing sweetness. In the glass the wine is grainy red as befits a good Nebbiolo. The wine has intense scents of vanilla, spices, withered roses. The "No Name Barolo" is full bodied with a soft and dry taste and a beautiful aftertaste.

“Borgogno. See also their Barbera and Barolo. Is one of the very first and therefore one of the oldest wineries in Piedmont. Now age does not always go hand in hand with quality, but here it does. Nebbiolo from the Langhe. Can't have a name. That's what it's called. The label also says 'etichetta di protesta'. The Borgogno family must have had a beef with the magistrates over 'official regulations'. Grapes from another plot. Method of making. Whatever. Happens often. And is then conveniently used as a nickname by the producer in question. The same here. For a not so rebellious, but extremely tasty and 'own' Nebbiolo. Powerful, dark, ripe tannins and a relaxing sweetness. But that shouldn't have a name” Harold Hamersma in De Grote Hamersma 2016, rated 8.5
