As one of the top red wines in Italy, barolo is made from the nebbiolo grape and aged for at least four years before it can be sold. The barolo region in Piedmont produces wines with a deep ruby color, complex aroma, and bold flavor. These characteristics have earned barolo the nickname “the king of wines, and the wine of kings.” In fact, barolo’s popularity can be traced back to King Charles Albert of Savoy, who named it his favorite wine in 1831. In addition to its traditional aging process, barolo gained recognition as one of the first wine regions to adopt modern techniques such as temperature controlled fermentation. While barolo can be enjoyed young, its complex flavors truly shine after several years of aging. Enjoy barolo with dishes like truffle risotto or braised meats for a delicious pairing.
Keep all barolos at cool room temperature before serving – never refrigerate them! And make sure to decant barolos that are meant for aging – this helps bring out their full flavors and aroma.
