Barolo is a traditional village in Piedmont, northwest Italy. The hills of the surrounding area have long been famous for producing fragrant, tannic red wines which take its name. These are made entirely from the Nebbiolo grape variety.

While youthful examples of Nebbiolo, as found under the likes of the Langhe Nebbiolo label, can show deep red, almost purple hues, most Nebbiolo is well-known for its relatively rapid transition (within just a few years of vintage), from from a deep, violet-tinged ruby and purple color to brick-red and brick-orange hues in the glass. This is due to the low pigment concentration in Nebbiolo's skins.

Tasting note: "Leather, cured meat, scorched earth, ripe berry and balsamic aromas lead the nose. The smooth, structured palate delivers layers of fleshy black cherry, white pepper and grilled herb alongside velvety tannins. A licorice note wraps around the lingering finish. Drink 2018–2026." - 95/100, Wine Enthusiast
