Here is the “Spirit” of the fields.

The area of Barolo

The Heart of the Langa

The Barolo comes from the heart of the hills of Langa, a few kilometers south of the city of Alba, in a region of 11 Municipalities, that chase each other in a suggestive itinerary made of imposing medieval castles, including that of Barolo, which gave its name to the wine celebrated today around the world.

The hills of Barolo are born to lift the sea in the tertiary period and are rich in limestone, but the composition of the soil is so varied that for a long time now tends to divide the area into two distinct areas, from which come Wines with well defined characters:

  • TheElvetian soil, rich in very compact grey-brown marl, which belongs to the Municipalities of Serralunga d’Alba, Monforte d’Alba and Castiglione Falletto with a structured Barolo, alcoholic, more suitable for long refinements in bottles;
  • The Tortonian soil, rich of blue marl, less compact, which belong to the Municipalities of La Morra and Barolo, with a less structured Barolo, of exceptional olfactory finesse and suitable for a more limited ageing in the bottle.

History, culture, tradition and science

The Charm of Barolo

Elevations between 200 to 550 meters a.s.l., two main and three dorsal valleys, almost parallel, expressing two pairs of sides between them: the Eastern one, cooler because it is exposed to the morning light, and the warmer western one; the south facing, warmer and suited to the Nebbiolo, and the north facing, decidedly less suitable…

From here begins everything that you should know about Barolo and that you can find in the double volume “Barolo MGA” by Alessandro Masnaghetti Editore for Enogea… For Sale by us!
