Piedmont’s “king of wines and wine of kings” got that reputation for a reason. A wine with centuries of history and tradition behind it, strict DOCG guidelines must be followed to preserve its worldwide reputation for being a pillar of Italian wine. Terrains, micro-climates, and styles change from growing area to growing area and even plot to plot, but one thing is for certain: It’s no longer just for royalty.
We make our Barolo using uncompromising winemaking standards, concentrating on balance, elegance, and aroma, and especially approachability.
