Barolo lies just south-west of Alba in Italy's north-western Piedmont region. Granted its DOCG classification in 1980, it is considered one of the finest and longest-lived wines, often referred to as 'the king of wines and the wine of kings'.

Until the mid-1800s Barolo wines were sweet, containing a substantial quantity of residual sugar, but their modern form is unquestionably dry and decidedly tannic.

It is a Barolo of tremendous balance from start to finish. One senses in the nose that the grapes ripened completely and fully, resulting in an explosion of power in the concentrated fruit and spice of the nose.

The intense creamy fruit anticipates the rich and balanced mouthfeel. The dense texture of the very sweet tannins is in perfect balance with the firmness of the fruit and acid.

The wine finishes with length and persistence and has great aging potential.
