Winery Notes:
Story:
Often called the King of Wines many consider Barolo to be Italy's greatest wine. It is made from grapes grown in vineyards south of Alba, in the Piedmont region of Italy. After a long, slow fermentation the wine is aged for two years in oak and then kept in bottle for another two before release. Although drinkable now, Barolo is one of the longest living wines and can be cellared for decades. We are excited to offer you this prestigious wine at such an approachable price.

Taste:
Garnet in color with a divine mixture of aromas that includes cherries, rose petals, cinnamon and hints of leather. The wine is full-bodied but not dense, and dry but supple. The combination of flavor and texture leads to a generously long finish before taking your next sip.
