Barolo. Langhe. Piedmont. Italy.
The wine of the Langhe area evokes the spirit of the land, its colours and warmth. Eleven villages perched in the hills along the right bank of the river Tanaro, nestling among vineyards: the heart of Italian winemaking. This is the sole production area for Barolo, one of the most important wines in the world. The great reds of the Grimaldi winery are produced in three of these historic villages - Barolo, Novello and Monforte d'Alba. On the other side of the Tanaro, the left, the contrastingly rugged heights of the Roero area yield wines that have a wonderful story to tell. A sip of Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore reveals the true class that this harsh terrain conceals.
