The producer

Borgogno, one of the oldest wineries in Piedmont dating back to 1761 with Bartholomew Borgogno, boasts a rich history intertwined with significant milestones. Notably, in 1861, Barolo Borgogno played a role in the birth of Italian unity, while in 1908, it graced the table of the Tsar of all Russia during a visit to Racconigi. The turning point occurred in 1920 when Cesare Borgogno initiated foreign exports, later realizing the potential of aging Barolo Riserva for 20 years.

Embodying a philosophy of deliberation and precision, Borgogno meticulously tends to its vineyards with organic products, leading to its first Biological harvest. With an ethos of preserving biodiversity, Borgogno dedicates a portion of its land to forestation. This blend of historical reverence, traditional methods, and innovative practices defines Borgogno's identity in the evolving landscape of winemaking.

The wine

The Giacomo Borgogno & Figli Cannubi Barolo 2016 is a distinguished expression of the Nebbiolo grape from the esteemed Cannubi vineyard in the Barolo region of Piedmont, Italy. This wine epitomizes the essence of its terroir with a complex bouquet of ripe red fruits, roses, and hints of earthy truffle. On the palate, it offers a harmonious blend of rich cherry, plum, and raspberry flavors, supported by firm yet elegant tannins and vibrant acidity. With its depth, structure, and remarkable finesse, the Giacomo Borgogno & Figli Cannubi Barolo 2016 showcases the pedigree of both the vineyard and the producer, making it a standout choice for enthusiasts seeking an authentic and memorable Barolo experience.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
