Barolo & Barbaresco

Through our partnerships with small, quality focused, family owned wineries, we are fortunate to be able to offer a unique selection of Piedmont wines that highlight the incredible terroirs of Barolo and Barbaresco. Old vintages, rare wines and larger sized bottles can be made available by special request.

Piedmont, lying at the foot of the Alps in north-western Italy and just 60 kilometres from Turin, was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2014. It is home to two of the most outstanding and internationally acclaimed Italian red wines – Barbaresco and Barolo – considered to be the purest and most elegant expressions of the Nebbiolo grape.

Barolo wines are aged for 38 months, 18 months of which are spent in oak. This results in extremely intense, structured wines with aromas of cherry, plum and tar, and that have a very high ageing potential.

The Barbaresco vineyards lie 15km north east of Barolo but are tiny in comparison, being only one third of the size of Barolo. The wines are lighter in style, being aged for a minimum of 26 months, of which 9 are in oak. Cherry, rose petals and violet are the aromas most frequently associated with Barbaresco.
