Barolo

Barolo is known as the ‘wine of kings and king of wines’. The village of Barolo and the surrounding winemaking region are situated in Piedmont, meaning ‘at the foot of the mountains' - the Alps to be precise. These rolling hills are home to more DOCG wines (the highest quality level of Italian wines), than anywhere else in Italy, not to mention the birthplace of the Slow Food movement. Barolo wines are made from Nebbiolo, a notoriously late-ripening grape which often stays on the vines until the autumn fogs roll in (nebbia meaning fog in Italian). Luckily for you, this allows exceptional flavours to develop in the grapes and, of course, the wines. Barolo DOCG can be made in any one of eleven communes with wines varying greatly in style depending on altitude and soil types in the vineyard.
