MARCHESI DI BAROLO BARBARESCO DOCG
The marchesi di barolo estate encompasses approximately 110ha of vineyards in the langhe, some of the finest in piedmont. The cellars are located in the village of barolo, overlooking the magnificent village landmark, the renaissance castle of the marchesi falletti di barolo. Vineyards were established here 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 deaths of carlo in 1838 and giulia in 1864, the marchesi di barolo dynasty was left without an heir. Under the wish of the 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 colour is garnet red with
ruby hues. The aroma is intense, persistent, with clear scents of fruit, dog
rose and spices. The taste is full-bodied but at the same time harmonious and
balanced, with graceful, never-too-prominent tannins.
