Virna in James Suckling

James Suckling has reviewed the 2014 Barolo vintage for his eponymous publication and the early news for Virna Borgnono is great! Considered a more difficult vintage, 2014 hasn't been lauded like other recent years, but Suckling finds plenty to like, saying: "What I like about the 2014 Barolos is the balance and finesse of the wines...I am interested in buying and drinking 2014 Barolos myself, as I wait for other vintages such as 2013, 2011 and 2010."

The Borgogno family has owned vineyards in Barolo since 1720, and have always attached particular importance to the work carried out in the vineyards and the selection of only the best grapes. The Virna label was created in 2001, when Virna Borgogno became proprietor of her family’s estate. Today the estate stretches out over an area of around 12 hectares, producing wines from grapes grown on its own vineyards located in historic crus in the Barolo wine-making area. Though the wines are from different crus, each one represents the heritage and tradition of the Barolo region.
