Why is Barolo so special?
Why King of wines?
At first glance the answer is simple: it’s because of the terroir. The Nebbiolo has found it in the 11 towns of the Langhe in which it is produced, just on the south of Alba, where the soil and climate conditions are unique. A wine for the nobles.
Art and discipline
The Barolo is a red wine produced with pure Nebbiolo grapes, and it should be aged for at least 3 years, of which 18 months in a barrel. With a 5-years aging it becomes a “Barolo Riserva”. The most used clones are the Nebbiolo Lampia, Michet and Rosè.
