Barolo Le Coste di Monforte

Barolo Le Coste di Monforte

This is the first Barolo cru from Amalia Cascina in Langa, one produced with a selection of grapes from the prestigious Le Coste vineyard in Monforte d’Alba.

The vineyard has a marl-clay soil rich in chalk which allows the vines to produce a Barolo that has structure and volume and yet is soft to the palate, warm and pleasing.
