Often called the "King of Wines," many consider Barolo to be Italy's greatest wine. It is made from Nebbiolo 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 year 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.
Layered aromas of cherries, rose petals, cinnamon and hints of leather present an intoxicating perfume, backed by an elegant texture, freshness and robust yet supple tannins. Pair this wine with rich, Italian food, like a truffle mushroom risotto or grilled ribeye with a red wine reduction.

I am definitely a novice when it comes to wine , but I know what I like and that is definitely this wine! Amazing wine from start to finish. First couple of sips were a bit sharp and then the wine mellows out nicely and plays on the tongue. This is a wine that you will want to purchase several bottles, but save some for me!
