The storied wine Barolo is often called the king of Italian wine. It became the chosen wine of Louis XIV and Charles Albert, as well as the Dukes of Savoy, Marquises of Saluzzo and Monferrato and numerous Popes. Writers and poets employed in their Courts have, over the centuries, given Barolo a long and glowing testament. It sits above a thousand year tradition of wine making in a wine making culture that is one of the oldest in the world. It has all of the Italian character of grace, elegance and power. Amongst connoisseurs, Barolo is Italy's most collected wine.
Barolo is a red Denominazione di Orgine Controllata e Garantina (DOCG) wine produced in the northern Italian region of Piedmont. Made from the Nebbiolo grape, On the nose, you will experience the equivalent of a bouquet of wild violets and roses. The taste can be sublime as almond, wild mushrooms and with age even chocolate.
The Barolo wine production centers are around the town of Alba in southern Piedmont.
There are three areas in the east around the villages of Barolo:
Le Morra where soils produce slightly lighter and more ripening and more openly fragrant wines of greater perfume.
The villages of Serralunga and Monforte where the poorer Helveetian soils are much less fertile, with more sandstone which results in a fuller, more tannic and longer lasting wine.
The wine in the village of Castiglione Falletto tastes like something between the two other areas.
There are also different (Cru) for example in Barolo and la Morra: some of the great vineyards are Brunate, Cerenquio, le Rocche in la Morra, le Serra in la Morra and the most famous Cannubi near the town of Barolo.
