Barolo is considered the king of Italian wine and it certainly is one of the best and most famous Italian wine.
Barolo is also the town that gives the name to the wine, for more information on the Barolo wine and how it is made read our Italian wine and grape guide
and this particular Barolo comes from Nebbiolo
grapes from vineyards in the La Morra commune, one of the most vocated area in the Barolo appellations.
This is a modern and yet typical Barolo wine. Elegant, complex, a red wine where the grape shows what is capable of, aged for 24 months in big barrels, the wood is used to help the grape’s tannins to soften, this Barolo has a complex nose with floral and spicy notes. In the mouth is full, balanced, with a lively acidity and soft tannins. To fully enjoy this wine, it is recommended to decant it for at least a couple of hours
Barolo is perfect wine to accompany roasted meat and game or just to be sipped over some mature cheese, preferably Piedmont cheese.
Collina San Ponzio started a century ago, they had until Pietro Balocco, the third generation, took over, been selling their own wine and grape to some of the best Piedmont producers. Only with Pietro and now Federico is son, a very young and talented wine maker, have decided to bottle their own wines and are creating some of the most interesting Piedmont wines, clean, with a classic approach.
Their production is very limited, but their vineyards are scattered in some of the most vocated area, a lot of work for them, but great wines for us to enjoy. Their Nebbiolo vineyards used in the making of their Barolos, are located in La Morra, one of the best areas for Barolo. We love their wines and we love them, they are as passionate as we are.
