BAROLO D.O.C.G.

Back to wines

Barolo… a name that recalls many things:
A great area with eleven hillside towns that constitute the birthplace of Barolo and the wine: BAROLO, a wine that comes from far back in the past.
Notoriously defined as “the king of wines, the wine of kings”, Barolo is today among the best expression of Italian enology, a robust and complex wine, majestic expression of Nebbiolo grape.

Nebbiolo 100%

Mdium-high hillside (300-400 m asl) with south-ouest exposure.

Vinification:
The grapes harvest is made by hand in the first/second ten days of October.
The fermentation is traditional, carried out for an average of 10-15 days in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature with floating cap and frequent pumping over of the must to optimize the extraction of the polyphenolic substances.
