Winemaker's Notes

One of the great names in Piedmontese winemaking, Cantine dei Marchesi di Barolo dates back as far as the 12th century, when the land-owning Falletti family of Piedmont's Barolo district was granted titles of nobility. Today the estate owns about 100 acres of vineyard in the Langhe, including some of the finest vineyards in the district. The Marchesi di Barolo cellars have been owned since 1929 by the Abbona family, who make their home in the large, yellow-fronted villa overlooking the terra cotta rooftops of the picturesque village of Barolo. Like their Falletti predecessors the Abbonas are committed to conserving the estate's time-honored reputation.

Production Area
From prime estate vineyards planted in calcareous, clayey soils on the moderately inclined hillsides of Piedmont's Barolo district.

Grape Varieties
100% Nebbiolo

Vinification
Following destemming, handpicked grapes are soft-pressed. Fermentation occurs at controlled temperatures in thermo-conditioned vats. Maceration lasts 10-18 days with racking of the wine only after all sugar content has been converted to alcohol.
The wine is aged 2-3 years in a combination of small, new and older, used Slavonian oak casks. The wine is further aged six months in bottle prior to release. It can be cellared for 15-20 years.

Color
Deep ruby red with orange highlights.

Bouquet
Intense rose bouquet with scents of licorice and spice.

Taste
Full-bodied, dry and elegant.

Serving Suggestions
A perfect complement to red meats and ripe cheeses. Serve at a moderate room temperature.

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines.
