The Boggione family story is one not uncommon in the EU—they were selling grapes from their incredibly valuable Barolo Brunate parcel to a larger negociant until 2008, when they decided to bottle under their own label. Brunate is among the most famous vineyards in all of Italy, and the family only makes about 6,000 bottles per year.

Claudio and his family farms completely naturally, free of pesticides and herbicides, and follows a gentle, traditional cellar regimen consistent with those who recognize the importance of the dirt under their feet. Long maceration and fermentation with indigenous yeast is followed by aging in old Slavonian oak and bottling without fining or filtration.

The resulting Barolo is archetypal to Brunate and to the region – structured, yet elegant, poised, and pure. As technology progresses and more modern techniques continue to take hold, count the Boggione family among those upholding the traditions that the foundation of Piedmont was built upon.

The Boggione family is taking their place alongside the other legendary growers who farm Brunate – one vintage at a time.
