Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
Barolo D.O.C.G. “Monvigliero” wine grows in the vineyards from one of the best area of Verduno, located in Barolo villages at 200 to 300 ft. above sea level. The average age of the vines is 50 years old, and they are grown on a southern exposure in calcareous clay soils, at a density of about 5,000 plants per hectare. After harvesting, the grapes are pressed and the must is fermented in temperature- controlled steel tanks, after a short period in contact with dry ice, to increase complexity and aroma.

Serving Hints
This wine is a perfect accompaniment for red meats, braised beef and pork, as well as an array of Italian cheeses.
