 63,90 130,90

This is the ultimate great Italian wine, produced exclusively from Nebbiolo grapes.

It comes from the heart of the Langhe hills, a few miles south of the town of Alba, an area of 11 municipalities that form a striking landscape of hills shaped by man’s expert hand and guarded by imposing medieval castles, notably the Castle of Barolo, which gives its name to a wine that today is famous all over the world.
