BAROLO

It is known to be “the King of Wines, the Wine of the Kings”, loved by sovereigns and nobles since the Middle Ages; it is recognized among the most famous and renowned red wines in the world.

Its production is subject to a very restrictive production’s technical policy.
It is obtained exclusively from Nebbiolo grapes, in 11 Langhe’s municipalities effected by fog, which forms along the Tanaro river’s banks and expands on the hills, wrapping the vineyards throughout all the harvest period.
After the harvest, the pressed grapes macerate for 7-12 days, excluding any forcing practice, which means without adding any yeast or heating up the tanks.
The fermentation and aging continue in wood with weekly batonnages in barrique until spring, then in big barrel for another 18 months, finally in bottle for at least 1 year.

Barolo is a fresh wine, with an expressive and particularly sophisticated character; garnet red color with orange reflections.
The scent is intense and persistent, with fruity, floral and spicy hints of violet, red fruits and vanilla. The taste is deep and expressive, reminds jam and Maraschino cherries, with notes of cinnamon, pepper, nutmeg. It has a moderate alcohol content.

Great match for roasts, red meats, game, hard and spicy cheese, Barolo is also a perfect wine for meditation.
