Brunella is one of the most historic single vineyard sites of all of Castiglione Falletto, however it hasn’t ever been bottled singularly under the Menzione Geografica Aggiuntiva BRUNELLA until 2013. The Brunella vineyard occupies the western crest of the Villero hillside and complete surrounds the Boroli winery. The vineyard is a monopole—owned entirely by Boroli and is the most prestigious wine in the lineup. As it occupies the best exposed section of the Villero hillside, La Brunella expresses power, drive, complexity, and extraordinary length and ageability.
A clear ruby red color, with very light orange reflections. A net aroma in which liquorice stands out at first, immediately followed by a fruity scent; the aroma makes you scent it again and again to discover different and pleasant facets. The fruity aroma magnificently prevails after a few minutes in the glass. A very enveloping, fresh and harmonious taste, with a delicate and tasty presence of wood. A long lasting taste that invites to sip it slowly again and again.
Cherry and mint are the main flavor themes in this fresh, fluid red, which is complemented by leather, tar and sanguine notes. Tightens up by the finish, where lightly astringent tannins reign.
Sweet fruit with cherry, toffee, chocolate and walnut character. Asphalt, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with creamy tannins and soft, succulent finish. Give it two or three years to come together.
The Boroli 2017 Barolo Brunella draws its fruit from the calcareous clay soils in the village of Castiglione Falletto. The wine is tart and streamlined with fruit that is slightly soft and plush but not too ripe. I am impressed by the silky nature of the tannins across these new releases from 2017, a vintage that made tannin management more of a challenge because the summer heat forced earlier ripening. Having said that, this Brunella is definitely more structured compared to the other two wines tasted from this estate
Aromas recalling iris, woodland berry and camphor shape the nose along with dark spice notes. On the austere, elegant palate, tightly wound, fine-grained tannins support spiced cranberry, pomegranate and licorice before closing on hints of blood orange.
