The Boroli family settled in Piedmont in 1831 but didn’t dive into the wine business until the 1990s when Silvano, Elena and their four sons purchased Cascina Bompe in Alba and Cascina La Brunella in Barolo. Achille Boroli leads a talented management team consisting of Enzo Alluvione and his son Daniele as vineyard managers and enologist Beppe Caviola, Gambero Rosso’s “Winemaker of the Year” in 2002, as consultant. Cascina Bompe is a fifty-acre estate on a hill named Madonna di Como. This estate wine is a blend of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Merlot. Aged in steel and oak for six months, it retains the fruit and creates a rich structure. It is a vibrant cherry and raspberry scented red that pairs with a wide variety of food. Although it is not inexpensive it tastes like a more expensive wine with its broad flavors and smooth lush tannins. Try this wine with beef, pasta or takeout from West Roxbury’s new barbecue restaurant Red Eyed Pig.
Wine maker notes
Wine produced with nebbiolo, barbera merlot e cabernet sauvignon grapes. The colour is ruby red with purple tints. On the noise it offers notes of raspberries, ripe fruits while on the palate this wine is fresh and particularly pleasant, well balance of acidity and tannins. It is ready for drinking but it can be kept in the cellar for a few years. It is maturated in steel and cask for 6 months, then refined in bottle for 3-5 months; the serving temperature is 16-17°C and it can be served through the entire meal. Features of Anna - Langhe Rosso

Producer
The Borolis are a Piedmontese family who have been in business in the region – first in textiles, and now in winegrowing – since 1831. Boroli is comprised of two estates: Cascina Bompe, in a small village just outside of Alba with its own winery and La Brunella in the heart of Barolo in Castiglione Falletto. In addition to the vineyards above, the property includes Villero and Borgata Cerequio both considered two of the Langhe’s great cru vineyards. Each vineyard has a particular terrior — La Brunella has a mostly medium-loamy chalk soil with sand veins, and east to south, southwesterly and west exposures. The Villero exposition is south-southwest and the soil is a moisture-retaining mix of marl, clay and silt. Borgata Cerequio faces south and southeast on limestone and sand soil, at an altitude of 900 feet above sea level. The estate’s director is the winemaker Enzo Alluvione, who is assisted by his son Daniele in the vineyards. The estate’s consultant is the noted winemaker Beppe Caviola who was chosen a Gambero Rosso‘s Winemaker of the Year in 2002.
