Question from Bruce from Edmonton:
What is Barolo?
Barolo is a wine from the Piedmont region of Italy that is made 100% from Nebbiolo grapes. It can be quite tannic when young, but well made Barolo can age for many years, in some cases for decades. It is often referred to as the king of wines and the wine of kings.
