Tasting Notes: The Langhe Nebbiolo is the pure expression of Nebbiolo: a fresh wine that conveys all the adistinctive characteristics of the variety: fresh and pulpy fruit, intensity, and drinkability. A fun and convivial wine, to be enjoyed with friends while discovering a great grape variety expressed in its purest form.
The number on the label, 1661, in red, is a tribute to the farmers who have been cultivating the vineyards around the cellar for more than 4 centuries. It’s the date of a cadastral document that certifies Brunella as an area dedicated to the production of high-quality grapes for exceptional wines.
Notes: The Langhe Nebbiolo 1661 is born from a selection of Nebbiolo grapes that grow with a north-facing exposure. This is complemented by a selection of grapes from the younger rows. The harvest is done manually, and the selection of the clusters takes place on a sorting table. Cryomaceration is carried out for 24/48 hours. Subsequently, fermentation and maceration occur in steel, followed by a few months of aging in oak barrels.
The Domain: Entrepreneurs since 1831, the Boroli family dedicated itself first to the textile field, then to publishing, and today it is involved in the wine industry. In the nineties, Silvano and Elena Boroli felt the need to reconnect with nature, far from the frenetic rhythms of modern life. They transformed their passion for wine and the Langhe region into commitment and dedication. In 2000, Achille, the third of four children, joined the company, contributing to turning the demanding job in the vineyards into something significant. It became a source of great satisfaction.
