The Great Crus of Barolo

2-day wine tour

Exclusive tour for real wine lovers and connoisseurs to discover the unique variety of styles given by the different local terroirs. Barolo is made entirely from the same grape, nebbiolo, and can be produced in 11 villages only, the 5 most famous being La Morra, Barolo, Monforte, Serralunga and Castiglione Falletto. You will be surprised by the substantial differences given to the wine by the different hills, vineyard exposure and soil components.

There are two major different types of soil, which reflect in two different styles of Barolo: for example, soils in Serralunga are quite old and thin, resulting in wines that have big tannins and structure, whereas soils in la Morra or Barolo are younger and with more sand, giving elegance and finesse to the wine.
