Barolo DOCG

Barolo.jpg

This is the Grand Italian Wine by definition, also produced entirely with Nebbiolo grapes. Barolo wine comes from the village in the Langa bearing the same name a few kilometres south of Alba. It is now made in eleven ‘communes’ or village territories, all situated on the scenic Langa hills shaped by centuries of vine cultivation and dominated by medieval castles – including Barolo’s own. The other communes included in the Barolo production area are: La Morra, Monforte, Serralunga d’Alba (with its exceptionally well- preserved medieval military fortress), Castiglio Falletto (its symbol, a round medieval tower, belongs to a still privately-owned manor building), Novello, Grinzane Cavour. Verduno, Diano d’Alba, Cherasco and Roddi (here the castle is currently being restored).

These communes, unlike Barolo, are only permitted to cultivate Nebbiolo for Barolo on a part of their territory. Thanks to the farming genius of Count Camillo Benso of Cavour (who was also Italy’s first Prime Minister) and to the intuition of Giulia Colbert Falletti, the last Marquess of Barolo, Barolo wine began to be produced around halfway through the 19th century. This wine, particularly rich and harmonious, became the Savoy Family’s best ambassador, representing Piedmont in all the royal courts of Europe.

At the moment, the tendency is a return to roots, with sobriety dominating production methods. What small differences there are do make for a stimulating range of experiences however, all of the highest level. This is a wine that is pleasing to the palate after four to five years and at its maximum after around ten but that can also be consumed with enormous pleasure after twenty or more. Obviously, the quality of the vintage plays its part: some are perfect and the resulting wine a masterpiece. Others, like the notorious 1977 vintage, produced no Barolo at all, while, 2002 with its summer of rain and hail, required all the skill of expert enologists to produce a valid wine.
