Item Description
"The grapes used in producing this wine come exclusively from vineyards located in the heart of the production of Barolo, Barbaresco and Nebbiolo d'Alba. Production code allows to make Barbera d'Alba wine in the assembly with a small percentage (up to 15%) of Nebbiolo d'Alba, in order to increase finesse and elegance.

The color is a dark ruby-red with crimson shades. The aroma is fresh and intense with clean scents of wild berries and spices. Clear but perfectly blended the wooden note. The flavor is warm and robust, pleasant, good body and harmonic. This Barbera's sensory attributes make it an outstanding accompaniment for imposing first courses and main-course, meats boiled or roasted." ~ Winery Notes
About Marchesi di Barolo
The Marchesi di Barolo estate encompasses approximately 430 acres of vineyards in the Langhe, some of the finest in Piedmont, including the prestigious Cannubi cru. The cellars are located in the village of Barolo, overlooking the Renaissance castle of the Marchesi Falletti di Barolo.

Barolo as we know it today was first made in the early 19th century by the Marchese Carlo Tancredi Falletti di Barolo and his wife, Giulia. The wine from their estate soon became known as "the wine from Barolo", served at important diplomatic and royal functions.

The Marchesi had no children and following the death of the couple, the Marchesi di Barolo dynasty was left without an heir. Per the wishes of Marchesa Giulia, a great philanthropist, the family assets were donated to charity and a non-profit foundation was created in their name, "Opera Pia Barolo", helping the most needy of nearby Torino. The sales of wine from their Barolo vineyards continue to fund the charity, which still exists today.

In 1929, local winemaker, Pietro Abbona purchased the cellars formerly owned by the Marchesi and eventually acquired all their vineyard holdings as well.

Today, Marchesi di Barolo remains a family business. Since 2006, the estate has been under the direction of Pietro's great-grandson and fifth-generation winemaker, Ernesto Abbona and his wife Anna, who have inherited a longstanding winemaking tradition and a love of the vineyards and its wines.
