Tasting Notes

Barolo is a classic Italian wine with a long history and tradition. Made exclusively with the region’s signature grape variety, Nebbiolo, Barolo wine is so revered that it was one of just three wines awarded DOCG status on the day that the classification was introduced in July 1980 (the other two were Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano).

Castel Boglione Barolo has a bright ruby color and offers classic floral and mineral notes. Good complexity on the palate with subtle oak that blends well with the red fruit, spices and floral (rose in particular) aromas. The clean, long finish will leave you longing for more. Barolo calls for important meals such as red meats, stews, game dishes and aged cheeses.
