Tasting Notes

Barolo, the king of wines, is the finest red wine coming out of Italy. The Barale estate is located in the commune of Barolo where they have honed their skills since the 19th century as they offer you age-worthy Nebbiolo today. This comes from 3 vineyards: Preda, Monrobiolo and Castellero and the vines have an average age of 35 years. Aged in 30 hl oak barrels followed by a further 6 months in bottle before release. This vintage is sublime and exudes both finesse and elegance.

Now Drink!
