In the backrooms of late eighteenth century apothecaries, chemists of the time created an elixer, a sort of tonic with medicinal properties. Serio and Battista Borgogno’s Barolo Chinato was inspired by these recipes, with the help of historical information passed down through generations of Borgognos. In 2016, after a long search of the family archives and with the help of a family friend, the cantina was able to reconstruct the original recipe of Serio Borgogno!
