Azienda Agricola Orlando Abrigo

The Abrigo family has been tending vineyards for generations, with their skills being handed down from father to son. In 1988, Giovanni Abrigo completed his wine-growing studies and began working alongside his father, Orlando, in the family business. Giovanni set out first to implement technical improvements in the winery, with the aim of producing wines of character. Subsequently the estate was extended with the acquisition of land and vineyards where the growing of new varieties for the Langhe, such as Chardonnay and Merlot, could be experimented with.

Today, the Orlando Abrigo winery farms around 25 acres of vineyards growing both traditional wines, such as Barbaresco, Dolcetto d'Alba Barbera d'Alba and Langhe Freisa, and wines of the new generation. New technology has been introduced into the winery alongside more traditional methods, with automatic fermenters being used to control the temperature and optimize the extraction of the colouring substances for the red wines. 

Furthermore, in the ageing of the wines Giovanni relies on a combination of large oak casks and smaller, 225-litre barrels made of French wood.  Together with his wife Virna Borgogno, he is also involved in the running of the Lodovico Borgogno estate located in the village of Barolo, which is specialized in the production of the celebrated wine of the same name. The "Azienda Agricola Orlando Abrigo" is a young, family-run company which has been successful in blending tradition and innovation to the benefit of the quality of its wines.

Orlando Abrigo Barbaresco Vigna Rongalio D.O.C.G. is created from the Lampia subvariety of Nebbiolo grapes at the Rongalio vineyard in the city of Treiso in the Piemont region.

It is ruby red, with a rich, complex, and highly elegant bouquet which reveals layers of violets, plums, cherries, cinnamon, pepper, and licorice, topped by tobacco and white truffles. Its dry, well-balanced flavour starts out firm and smooth and becomes gradually more elegant and harmonious, with a lingering finish.

Best served at room temperature.
