100% Nebbiolo grapes, these wines take their name from
the village of Barolo. A maximum of 205,000
cases per year can be made from 3,081 acres of land
divided between 11 communes and more than 1,200 growers.
A wine of great perfume, body and size, the classic
nose of Barolo is "tar and roses." Barolo
is best served with roast meats such as the Piemontese
del Barolo" (pot roast cooked with a Barolo), but also
pairs well with game birds or powerful cheeses.
This is a soft, smooth, round Barolo. With its moderate
tannins, its alcohol and acidity are generally well-balanced.
Extraordinarily easy to drink just a few months after
bottling, in outstanding vintages it can also be cellared
for considerably longer than 10 years.
