The Barolo 'Arborina' by Elio Altare represents an icon in Piedmontese winemaking tradition, emerging as an emblematic product of a revolution in the industry that took place in the 1980s. Elio Altare, a prominent figure in the Piedmontese wine innovation school, significantly contributed to redefining the very concept of Barolo, bringing a wind of change influenced by both France and the New World. This wine embodies the essence of an innovative and passionate approach to winemaking, blending modern techniques with respect for tradition.

The roots of Barolo Arborina delve into the picturesque hills of the municipality of La Morra, in the heart of the Langhe, where vines of varying ages, some dating back to 1948, lie on a mixed terrain of marl and sandy clay, exposed to the southern sun. The production of this wine follows a rigorous vineyard work philosophy, with reduced yields per hectare and special care for the vine's vegetative cycle. In the cellar, the vinification and aging process occurs according to established traditions, with maceration on the skins in a rotary fermenter, a tank shaped like a transverse drum primarily used for reds, followed by aging in French oak barrels for 24 months, contributing to the wine's distinctive complexity and structure.

The Barolo Arborina by Elio Altare presents itself with a bright ruby red hue, enriched by garnet reflections that highlight its maturity. On the nose, fruity and floral notes open up, evocative of flower petals, enriched by an ethereal and sweet undertone. On the palate, the wine reveals itself as elegant and feminine, with delicate tannins that harmoniously blend with an intense and well-structured taste. This Barolo is an ideal companion for rich and succulent dishes, pairing perfectly with the delicacies of Piedmontese tradition such as braised beef in Barolo. Its complexity and versatility make it an authentic and satisfying tasting experience for the most discerning connoisseurs.
