Barolo, Torlasco

Torlasco Barolo celebrates the fascinating and charismatic character of Giulio Barol “”Dottor Barol”” who is represented on the label. He was a graduate in Pharmacy and a member of the newly born Subalpine Agarian Association of Turin in 1884. A great connoisseur of wines and a lover of travel, he observed the traditions and ageing of whiskys on a trip to Scotland and was convinced the Nebbiolo grapes should be treated in the same way. Convincing a number of friends to help him with the line “”I will see you in three years”” the results are now in the history books. This is a wine of exceptional harmony and richness, with spicy notes of cinnamon, pink vanilla and licorice.
