Barolo, “the king of wines and the wine of kings” comes from vineyards around the town of Barolo in the Piemonte region of northwest Italy, south of Turin and in the foothills of the Alps. Soils are calcareous and climate is unique with hot humid summers and cold foggy winters. Despite this, it is one of Italy’s great wines, but needs careful ageing. Rivetto is farmed organically with immense respect for the land, and the wine is fined the traditional way, with egg white. Serious quality.
