Virna in the Wine Advocate

Monica Larner, writing for the Wine Advocate, has released her reviews of the 2016 vintage in Barolo, including the wines from Virna. These hand-crafted Piedmontese wines have had an incredible run of successes lately, with glowing writeups and scores to match. These wines are no exception, as Larner finds much to like throughout the range. Congratulations to Virna for another successful vintage!

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.
