Giacomo Borgogno & Figli is a renowned Italian winery located in the Piedmont region, specifically in the town of Barolo. The winery has a long history, dating back to the 18th century. "Antichi Vigneti" translates to "Ancient Vineyards," and "Canubbi" refers to a specific vineyard site. This Barolo wine is made from grapes sourced from ancient vineyards in the Canubbi area, which impart unique characteristics to the wine.
Barolo is a Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) red wine produced in the northern Italian region of Piedmont. Made from the Nebbiolo grape variety, it is regarded as one of Italy's greatest wines, and is characterized by its rich tannic structure, rust-red coloration and 'tar and roses' aromas. Barolo wines, especially those labeled as Riserva, are often intended for long-term aging. They can improve and develop in complexity for many years, sometimes even decades, if stored properly.
Barolo is required by law to be aged for at least 38 months after the harvest prior to release, of which at least 18 months must be in wood. To gain the classification of Riserva the minimum ageing period prior to release is five years.
