Barolo, the King of wines!
Barolo, situated in the northern region of Piedmont, is one of Italy’s most famous appellations (DOCGs) and has UNESCO World Heritage status.
Barolo wines are produced exclusively from the Nebbiolo grape and are often called the King of Wines! The region benefits from a continental climate (warm and temperate), with a long summer/autumn perfect for producing top quality grapes. DOCG regulations state that Barolo must be aged for a minimum of three years.
This superb Barolo is made by a cooperative of small vineyards in the Portacomaro area of Asti where the hilly terroir provides the essence of high quality wines based on the majestic Nebbiolo grape.
