Marchesi Di Barolo, Barbera d’Alba DOC 'Ruvei', 2011 (half bottle)
MARCHESI DI BAROLO
The Cellars of Marchesi di Barolo are located in the village of Barolo, overlooking the castle of the Marquis Falletti.
In fact, the building which today houses the winery also belonged to the Marquis Falletti and became, upon the extinction of this prestigious dynasty, the site of the charitable foundation called Opera Pia Barolo. Now controlled and run by the Abona family, the winery received a new impetus and is driving the search for quality in the Piedmont region.
The Barbera comes from the Langhe region and has spent a year in French oak barrels, it is medium bodied and displays warm spicy and wild berry characters.
