Barolo Chinato

"Il Diavolo sulle Colline"
Winemaking Philosophy

Barolo Chinato has been made in Piedmont since the late 19 th century It became popular thanks to its fame as a medicinal wine. The indispensable element for this aromatised wine is a traditionally vinified Barolo whose production is carried out with meticulous attention to the canons of tradition and to the requirements of the DOCG Production Code. 

Recipe: the estate uses a recipe based upon a natural infusion of Calissaja Cinchona, rhubarb root, gentian, genzianella cloves, cardamom and about ten other aromatic herbs. The decision to maintain a low alcohol content is due to the desire to enhance the Barolo used in production.
