Barolo is the great red wine by definition, the jewel in the crown of Piedmontese winemaking, a symbol of elegance, balance, structure, longevity and an ambassador for Made in Italy excellence throughout the world. It is produced in 11 municipalities of the Langhe, an area with an ancient winemaking tradition, but its origins are rather recent. In fact, it was born during the 19th century thanks to the contribution of Count Camillo Benso di Cavour and the Marchioness Giulia Colbert Falletti, as well as the innovative enological knowledge of General Paolo Francesco Staglieno. It is said that King Carlo Alberto was its greatest admirer. And so from the close link between its characteristics and the tastes of the nobility in the 19th century, the saying "the King of wines, the wine of Kings" was born.
