Description of product typologies

Barolo PDO is garnet-red in colour; the nose offers rose and dried violet, small red fruits, liqueur cherry and jam, with spicy notes of cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg; the scents on the nose return on the palate, with the addition of vanilla, liquorice, cocoa, tobacco and leather. It can be made available for consumption after it has aged for at least 3 years, of which one and a half years must be passed in oak wood. Riserva can be displayed on the label if it has aged for more than 5 years. The Barolo PDO designation can be followed by “Chinato” for aromatised wines if the base wine is Barolo, without the addition of musts or wines that do not have the right to use the designation, and with additives that allow for reference to “China” (quinine cordial) in the designation, according to the regulations in force.
