Virna in Wine Advocate

The 2014 Barolos from Virna Borgogno have received acclaim in the latest issue of the Wine Advocate. Monica Larner reviews their single-vineyard lineup, saying "I am very happy with these new releases from Virna."

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.
