Overview

This is the most modern styled Barolo in the Marchesi di Barolo lineup. It is made with 100% Nebbiolo grapes from estate owned vineyards in the commune of Barolo. This includes the famous vineyards of Cannubi, Sarmassa and Brunate. The wine ages for 18 months in lightly toasted French barriques and Tonneaux and is then transferred to large Slavonian casks for further conditioning before bottling.
