The Barolo – king of wines and wine of kings – has been celebrated as the Nebbiolo’s best product for centuries. It is historically linked to the Unification of Italy – the Rinascimento in Italy. Well-known politicians of the time and the Royal family – the Savoia – have relished of this great wine that today more than ever is a prize for the enology.
Barolo has a long history of wine production, the area was named some 400 years ago and probably came from the Celtic brolio or brol, meaning "wood" or "orchard".
The region of Barolo encompasses approximately 3,000 acres of vines situated southwest of the town of Alba, in all or part of 11 communes.
The municipalities in which Barolo is produced are the following: La Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Serralunga d’Alba (with its exceptionally well-preserved medieval military fort), Castiglione Falletto (its symbol is a round medieval tower), Novello, Grinzane Cavour, Verduno, Diano d’Alba, Cherasco, Roddi and Barolo.
The Rocche di Castiglione vineyard is to be found in the municipality of Castiglione Falletto – located in one of the best areas for the Nebbiolo growing.
Complex full-body structure and great potential of aging are only few of the amazing features of the Barolo.
Maturation : 24 months in big Slavonian oak barrels
Aging : 4-6 months in stainless steel tanks and minimum 6 months in the bottle
Attractive hue and good intensity of colour lasting over the time. Intense, full and lingering bouquet with hints of liquorice and mint and sensations of mature fruit. Ethereal sensations with notes of resin and sweet spices develop with aging. Full-bodied in the mouth, good tannins and acidity that evolves and finds its balance over the years. Excellent longevity.
Culinary Recommendation: To serve 16 - 18 C. Good match with roasts, game
