TASTING NOTES

The history of the Marchesi di Barolo company began more than 200 years ago, right in the heart of the municipality of Barolo, in the building opposite the Marchesi Falletti Castle. The origins of the estate are strongly linked to the birth of Barolo, the king of wines. In 1864, with the death of the last member of the Falletti dynasty, the cellar passed into the hands of Opera Pia Barolo, a charity that sank the proceeds from the sale of wine into charitable works. The whole estate, which now includes 200 hectares of vineyards between Langhe, Roero and Monferrato, was subsequently bought by the Abbona family in 1929. The winery's best vineyards are vinified individually. Barolo Chinato is an aromatised red wine from Piedmont that has to be produced from Barolo DOCG wine (thus 100% Nebbiolo) that has already completed the minimum ageing period and has passed the chemical physical organoleptic test required by the Production Regulations, to which cinchona calisaya bark is added. This is followed by ageing for at least one year in barrels where the wine is able to blend all the aromatic elements of the infusions and bring them into harmony. Resting in the bottle will increase the softness on the palate and improve the aromatic characteristics. It has a wonderful garnet colour with flashes of orange, hints of oriental spices, rhubarb, macerated cherries and sweet floral notes. In the mouth it is warm, with just the right sweetness and well balanced by the typical almondy note given by the spices used. Ideal for post-dinner meditation, perhaps together with a good bar of dark chocolate. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Marchesi di Barolo

The foundation of the ancient wine cellars of the Marchesi di Barolo dates back two centuries, in the Falletti castle in Barolo, in the heart of Piedmont. Since then, passion and love for wine growing have marked the history of the finest Piedmontese wines, and the winery itself has managed to become one of the most important landmarks in the entire region. The winery is located among the gentle hills of the Langhe, dotted with vines and cultivations, where Barolo itself is born. Since it was founded, the winery's aim has been to enhance the unique properties of the soil in order to offer the best of Piedmont in every glass. The grapes come from a wide variety of sources, partly from their own vineyards and partly from winegrowers who have been selected over many years, favouring the location of the vineyards and individual cultivation skills. In tutto, oggi l'azienda controlla circa 120 ettari di vigneto. Careful and constant work among the autochthonous vines of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato leads to an absolutely unique end result. Name and address of producer/distributor: Marchesi di Barolo - via Roma, 1 - 12060 Barolo (CN). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
