Tasting Notes

From the one-hectare plot of Liste Cru in Barolo, it is fermented in oak casks before being rested in stainless steel to preserve its original flavors. You might remember Le Liste as the vineyard behind Giacomo Borgogno’s rare “Riserva Storico” bottling. Liste is just north of Cannubi –the very next hill in fact—between Cannubi and Brunate to be precise. With its elegant, deep ruby red, to the nose its perfume is about cherry, blueberry and mint. Balanced, with good depth and persistence. Perfect match  with hot appetizers, stuffed pastas, delicate meat.

The Producer

Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno

Since 1897 this family-run winery has produced legendary wines from their Cannubi vineyard. If Italy were to employ the same vineyard classification system as Burgundy, there is no arguing that Cannubi would be amongst the Grand Crus. Frankly, there is little argument that it would be the King amongst even that elite company of celebrated and famous vineyards. Today, the 5th generation (Emanuela and Federica) in this family wine company continue to make beautiful and authentic wines from their stellar vineyards throughout Langhe.
