Overview

Barolo del comune di Barolo DOCG Essenze is a Barolo blend of the finest pedigree. Starting with 2000, first year of Terre da Vino in Barolo village, we selected small lots of cru-grown Barolos from prestigious vineyards to create a prestigious blend. Following the traditional local winemaking practice of blending together various separate lots to compose a Barolo, we achieved a Barolo of superb quality. Despite utilising traditional winemaking practices, our house style is evident, which emphasises full-bodied wines with emphatic fruit, and optimal equilibrium among all components as well.
