Barolo is one of Italy’s most famous wines, made from the Nebbiolo grape. It comes from the Piedmont region of Italy, found in the northwestern area of the country, near the Alpine Mountains. Barolo is a large, robust wine, with strong aromas of licorice, chocolate, and roses. Barolo is strongly tannic, which means the wine will leave your tongue dry (and wanting more); these tannins mellow over time, giving the wine a softer elegance, so remember that Barolo wears wonderfully with age.
