Barolo is a great red wine with a venerable history, whose qualities were prized by the famous statesman Camillo Benso, Conte di Cavour.
Following a traditional fermentation and maceration, this Barolo matures up to 2 years in oak barrels, where it develops the tannins and extractive compounds that will give it superb structure and enable it to age for many years. This is followed by a period of bottle ageing.
