Barolo

Barolo wines are made from the Nebbiolo grape, a red grape originally found in Piedmont Italy, but is now also grown in limited amounts in many other regions of the world. This grape is used to make both Barbaresco and Barolo wines. The appellation produces the deepest, the most serious and the most complex expression of this variety, includes several renowned crus, including Cannubi, Brunate, Rocche, Monprivato, Bussia and Ginestra. The wines can take years to fully reveal themselves, and to round out their acidity and tannins. They often show aromas described as roses, tar, tobacco and spice, with lots of length and finesse.
