Barolo

Barolo

Barolo is undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest wines. It is a combination of high tannins, high acidity and high alcohol (where 14.5% is considered ‘normal’), a combination of all three of these characteristics is rarely found elsewhere in the world of wine. There are similarities with Burgundy, in that there is a single variety that has an powerful ability to transmit its sense of place; fragmented and parcelised vineyards that regular appear named on the labels; and a tension between the traditionalists and the modernists, which admittedly has been lessening over the last decade.
