Barolo

Barolo is one of the best-known wines in Italy and in the world, a symbol of qualitative excellence of Italian viticulture. Recognized as “the wine of kings, and the king of wines”, Barolo owes its success also to kings. In fact, as King Charles Albert of Savoy learned of the existence of this more structured and full-bodied wine than the sweet and slightly sparkling wines that were made at that time, he asked the Barolo Falletti Marchioness to taste their product; the king liked it so much that he began to suggest it even to the most influential families of the time.

Barolo is a Piedmontese red wine that obtained the Doc in 1966 and the Docg in 1980; for its production, only the use of Nebbiolo grapes, the main vine of the Langhe and the whole Piedmont, is allowed; to be ready it must age for a minimum of 3 years for the basic version and 5 years for Riserva. The Nebbiolo variety is a late-ripening vine, upon the arrival of the first fog, from which it takes its name, as well as a generally quite opaque (clouded) grape due to an important layer of bloom.

Barolo is one of those few Italian wines that takes its name from the municipality where it is born, it can be produced, in addition to the small municipality of Barolo, only in 10 other towns. The territory where this wine is born, the Langhe, is characterized by a deep diversity, just think that in the municipality of Barolo alone there are 4 different crus (Cannubbi, Sarmassa, Costa rose and Brunate).
