Did you know? ... What is Barolo Wine?

Barolo is a small village in the Alba region of Italy. The village has given its name to a style of wine, which is crafted from the Nebbiolo grape. Barolo almost always tends towards big, vibrant wines, rich in tannins and acidity. Plum, flowers, liquorice, and truffle, the huge flavors easily stand up to long-term aging, and the naturally strong tannins most often need at least a few years to mellow out.
