Marchesi di Barolo
Marchesi di Barolo historical cellars are located in the town of Barolo, in the building overlooking the Castle of the Marquis Falletti. It is here that more than 200 years ago a beautiful story began.
The story of a wine cellar where, in the heart of the Langhe area and protected by gentle hills, a wine was born. This wine, as the French tradition suggests, was called Barolo like the town where it was produced for the first time. No one at that time could imagine that it was destined one day to be king: the King of Wines, the Wine of the Kings.
Today Marchesi di Barolo is still a family business. The greatest merit goes to the people who were able to deeply understand what nature has spontaneously offered. Through its great, historical human experience, Marchesi di Barolo has been and still is a faithful exponent of the diversity of the land and its native vines, while rigorously respecting and preserving the typicality of its products. All this is achieved by using grapes that come from estate vineyards and from contributing vintners selected over the years, favouring optimum position and the ability to maintain individual vineyards.
Marchesi di Barolo controls approximately 120 hectares of vineyards and produces wines from the major indigenous varieties of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato. In order to better define and enhance their different characteristics, the most prestigious historical crus are made from a single variety, and individually aged and bottled.
