Veglio Barolo

Barolo is the “King of Wines”.  It is made from Nebbiolo grapes, a native grape to the Piedmont region, in northwest Italy.  These wines can be traced back to as early as the thirteenth century.  A Barolo must be produced in one of eleven communes included in the production zone.  Barolo must age for 38 months, 18 of which must be in wood.

Veglio Barolo is delicate yet intensely aromatic with a bouquet of fruits and spices.  This dry, bold full-bodied wine offers a nice balance of tannins and acidity, providing a harmonic finish.

Pairs well with: red meats, game, rich sauces, and aged cheeses
