“Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno is one of the most historic estates in Piedmont, with a number of core holdings in and around Cannubi...Borgogno is an estate to watch.”–Antonio Galloni, Vinous
"Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno is another old-school estate that has really come along in the last few years... Readers who appreciate traditionally made Barolo will want to check out these wines. I have said it before, but it bears repeating. Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno is an estate to watch." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
It is the terroir, and resulting style that separates Cannubi from Barolo’s other vineyards. The crus of Serralunga and Monforte are known for their power, and to a certain extent, the Barolo DOCG as a whole enjoys the same reputation. The majesty of Cannubi lies in its lifted, floral aromatics with a palate characterized by elegance and approachable structure. As with all great wine, its requisite age-worthiness is undeniable, but unlike many Baroli, Cannubi brings uncommon pleasure in youth. Francesco Borgogno established Fratelli Serio and Battista Borgogno in 1897. At the time his was the only winery on the Cannubi hill. He served as the mayor of the town of Barolo for more than 30 years, leading an informal association of growers and helping to solve problems in the vineyards and beyond. The estate has been in the family since its beginning, with fourth-generation sisters Anna and Paola Borgogno now handing the reins over to daughters Emanuela and Federica.
