Alongside

Mauro Carosso we Roberto Marro, his collaborator, journalist and editor, works with the newspaper La Stampa in Turin.

The Barolo was a key part in the history of this wine, the Falletti family, lived in the Castle of Barolo, but the history of wine began many centuries before, with the community of the Ligurian Stazielli, who were defeated by Roman legions near Acqui Terme, a strategic area for trade, crossroads and near the sea. Alba and Pollenzo were cities founded by the Romans during the period of Julius Caesar begins to talk about Nebbiolo. In the Middle Ages, we have the first document in the Castello di Rivoli, near Turin, in The Statutes of La Morra 1512 is mentioned, "Nebiolium" and in 1606 Giovan Battista Croce, jeweler of Savoy, he wrote a book in which he cites the wine produced in the hills of Turin. In 1751, speaking for the first time officially Barolo, in London, thanks to a shipment of wine. Thomas Jefferson in 1787, is to visit the wine regions of Italy and France and writes on this occasion, many notes, in the resurgence Barolo meets the history of Italy, Camillo Benso di Cavour, who created the modern Barolo, After leaving the army he devoted himself to the family estates in Grinzane are about 205 hectares. Nebbiolo is planted next to 5 acres of Pinot Noir and called Stagliero as winemaker, who will bring fermentation in closed tanks, the use of sulfur and barrels for aging. This wine is like and can market it well. Another personality who has given so much to wine is Oudart Louis, French Burgundy wine trade in Genoa, he moved to Barolo to bring the long maceration and bottling of wine. Oudart is also the first sparkling wine in the Cortese. Juliette Colbert Maulévrier, belonging to a noble French family, wife Tancredi Falletti and moved to Turin, Tancred died in 1838 and she remains in the Langhe asking Camillo Benso di Cavour Oudart to lend the wine maker to improve its wines. Carlo Alberto, the father of the first King of Italy, wine drinks Marchesa, made to him to get to Turin on board of 365 minus 40, which are the days of Lent, wagons each with a barrel of Barolo. Savoy also begin to produce Barolo and thanks to John Vial, deputy chef of the court, to merge with the French and Piedmontese cuisine, which is in assisting in the preparation of the dishes.

A small country with companies that work well, only small vineyards by extension, but big in the final result. The vineyard Monvigliero has a total of 11 hectares and has a historical dispute with Cannubi, vineyard in Barolo, and the fact that it is the last vineyard in the Langhe, Roero and before the river Tanaro.

Fratelli Alessandria Barolo Monvigliero 2005 company founded in early 800, have 12 acres of property plus 2 on lease, this Barolo 5000 bottles produced from a vineyard of 30 years. Garnet-colored wine alive, not a great vintage, spicy, still a young wine, with hints of violets and ripe fruit, medicinal herbs, slightly astringent tannins, tasty.

A company with only 3.5 hectares, all in the town of La Morra, classic Langhe winemaker. The wine is rich, with hints of blackberries and cherries, tannic, end and mature.

Voerzio Barolo Vecchie Viti of Capalot and Brunate Riserva 1999 produced only in Magnum, the cost is around € 200, very low yields per hectare, on their own since 1986, Robert Voerman has 13 acres of property for rent and 7, no use is made of sulfur dioxide. Wine recognizable personality, linked to the territory, exasperation on the yield, characteristics constant over time, wine with good body, hints of licorice, persistent, deep garnet color.

Barolo, the vineyards most representative of this council are: Cannubi, Boschis, San Lorenzo, and Vallette Castellero. Just Vine Cannubi we have the old bottle of Barolo dated 1752.

Barale Fratelli Barolo Riserva 2003 Castellero room we Sergio Barale, producer of this company founded in 1870, 10 and 10 acres of property for rent. Vigna polyclonal, which mature later in the summers so hot you have the best result, a hill with fresh morning dew, no clarification, and in bottle for at least 12 months, crushing, rimantaggi light and frequent, 3 years in French oak. With balsamic wine, tannic and aggressive, long-lived, and spicy notes of licorice, smell challenging. Personally I consider him the best of the six wines for tasting today.
