ABOUT THE VINEYARD

Barolo

Barolo is considered the "king of wines" or the "wine of kings". It is a wine made exclusively from Nebbiolo grapes that made Piedmont famous all over the world. It was born in the heart of the Langhe - hills particularly suited for the production of high quality wines - few kilometers south from the city of Alba, also known for the famous White Truffle. It is an exceptionally rich and harmonious wine, enhanced by its structure that reveals a complex and enveloping bouquet that has the peculiarity of evolving and improving over time without losing its extraordinary organoleptic characteristics. It has a garnet red color with orange reflections, an intense and persistent bouquet, with a particularly complex olfactory content, both fruity and spicy. Although it can be appreciated after 4-6 years, it reaches its peak after 10 years of aging, and is still excellent even after 20 years or more. Its " hard" properties - acidity, tannins, minerals - are well balanced with the "soft" ones - alcoholic and polyalcoholic - with the exceptional intensity and persistence that make Barolo a powerful, elegant and charismatic wine It requires at least thirty-eight months of aging, eighteen of which in wooden barrels. The whole process of vinification, aging and bottling has to take place within the DOCG area: 11 municipalities in the heart of Langhe.
