Winemaker Notes

Vivid ruby red colour. Haunting nose of fresh berries and hints of licorice. Harmonious flavours of mocha and fresh cloves blend in a persistent, velvety mouthfeel where oak brings a balanced structure. Boroli Barolo Brunella Monopole embodies finesse and elegance and is an invitation to come back to your glass again and again as it releases its perfumes.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
First produced in 2013, this is the top-shelf wine from Boroli made with fruit from Castiglione Falletto. The Boroli 2016 Barolo Brunella opens to a pretty garnet color and a soft, mid-weight approach. Compared to the other new releases in this portfolio, the Brunella offers a more delicate and fragile elegance without the heavier oak signature that we saw in the other Barolo. The bouquet opens slowly to reveal wild rose, cherry, blood orange and ferrous earth. The fruit is presented with focus and precision, and after a little while in the glass, the bouquet throws out some light toast and spice. This is a nicely balanced Barolo.

James Suckling

Cherries and berries with hints of cedar and dried flowers follow through to a medium body, round tannins and a juicy finish. Drink now or hold.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

The vivid structure, supple texture and flavors of plum, eucalyptus, soy and spice come together nicely in this compact red. Dense, refined tannins line the finish but it tails off a little in the end.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Subtle aromas of cedar, espresso and dark-skinned berry emerge from the glass. The firm palate delivers blackberry jam, mocha and vanilla alongside tightly wound tannins. Drink 2023–2030.

Boroli Winery Video

The Boroli family is a family of entrepreneurs, with roots in Piedmont dating back to as early as 1831. The family did not embark in the winemaking business until 1997, when Silvano and Elena Boroli felt an ardent desire to step away from the pressures of their publishing business and reconnect to nature. Silvano and Elena grew the company until their son, Achille, stepped in to run the wine-growing and production business in 2012.

Achille grew up studying wine by experiencing every level of the winemaking process in a tactile and sensory manner. For years, he shadowed the winemaker at his family’s winery, tasting samples from every barrel, touching every bunch of grapes, smelling every oak barrique, until he developed an intuition. That intuition, paired with precise vineyard management and winemaking techniques, are the tools Achille uses to make wines of the highest quality today. 

With the 2012 grape harvest Achille decided to radically change the methods used in vineyards and wineries, aiming for the highest quality in Barolo and its crus. He cut production levels, updated the winemaking technology, and focused on low intervention methods to raise the quality of the Boroli wines be on par with the finest Barolo wines. 

For Achille Boroli, quality starts in the vineyards. From the vineyard to the bottle, Boroli’s winemaking choices are focused on one thing: producing unique Barolo wines of extreme quality. In the vineyard, quality begins with fertilizing, which is carried out every three years, using only organic materials. The density per hectare is kept at a minimum, and green harvesting is used to minimize the production of grapes, keeping only 4-6 bunches per vine, thus concentrating the efforts of the vine to the bunches of the highest quality.

Attracting the most glory, prestige and fame to the Piedmont region, Nebbiolo in all of its expressions—Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero, Ghemme and Gattinara—creates a complex wine, truly unique for its delicate qualities combined with strength and a great potential to improve over time.

But Nebbiolo isn’t all there is to red wine from Piedmont! Barbera is the most planted variety and historically most popular as a dependable, food-friendly, everyday wine.

Beyond these two, a surprising number of red varieties call Piedmont their home. Worth a try include Dolcetto for its bold concentration and aromas of spice cake. Other grapes to investigate include Freisa, Croatina, Brachetto, Grignolino and Pelaverga.
