Winemaker's Notes

Barolo is the most aristocratic of the red traditional wines of Piedmont. The vineyards of Nebbiolo for Barolo are cultivated in very restricted areas of the Langhe hills where the soil is particularly precious. The Barolo applellation covers 3,000 acres and is known as the "Wine of Kings and the King of Wines" due to its high quality and early favor in history with the Royal family of the House of Savoy.

Ethereal, intense, with notes of spices and dried fruits. Offers great finesse on the nose and palate. Dry, full-bodied, imposing-yet-elegant, austere-but-velvety.
