Barolo DOCG Paesi Tuoi

Barolo DOCG Paesi Tuoi

Story of the wine:
Barolo is made exclusively with the temperamental Nebbiolo grape that rarely seems to flourish far beyond the villages surrounding Barolo and Barbaresco. Barolo is centred on the eponymous village just south of the town of Alba in Piemonte and is no bigger than the Bordeaux comunes of St. Julien and Pauillac combined. Alba is also particularly famous as the home of Italian truffles.
Barolo has been regarded since the mid 19th century as one of Italy’s finest wines. Formerly the style of Barolo was very dry and tannic, however, nowadays the tannins are more subdued and the distinctively perfumed nebbiolo fruit is more evident. Paesi Tuoi (literally, Your Countryside) is named after a novel by the local author Cesare Pavese, who wrote in the 1940s and 1950s.arolo is made exclusively with the temperamental Nebbiolo grape that rarely seems to flourish far beyond the villages surrounding Barolo and Barbaresco.

Producer details

  • Producer: Vite Colte
  • Producer website: http://www.vitecolte.it/
  • Vite Colte, based in Barolo, is a share holding company established in 1980. Owned by 14 co-operatives Vite Colte was given a mission to identify and make wines from the best vineyards from their 2.500 members. Vite Colte has great resources in terms of vineyards all over the region, over 4.500 hectares, from which they are able to select the best grapes to produce some of the finest wines.

    At the end of 2015, Terre da Vino has decided to focus on a smaller number of wine growers, that produce best quality wines. To emphasise this new approach they have decided to re-brand these top wines under the name Vite Colte. Literally this phrase has a double meaning referring to vine growers with both knowledge and experience, and this phrase resonates with the word; viticulture.
