If you like traditional Barolo, then even the small vintages from Borgogno are something for you.

The Giacomo Borgogno 1962 Barolo Riserva has a very light garnet colour which may be irritating. But it is a very traditional Barolo and needs minimum 2 hours in the decanter before the wine begins to open up with dried rose blossoms, malt, moss, tar, bacon, liquorice and even plaka, truffle and black tea with further aeration. The wine has medium- to full-body, a little acetone, tannin, structure, high complexity and a long finish. 18/20 points.
