Barolo Chinato

Aromatized wine

This unique digestive and dessert wine finds its roots in the heart of the Barolo region, in Piedmont, at the end of the 18th century. It follows a traditional family recipe – jealously guarded – and began to be produced as a remedy for many diseases.
It was made at home by infusing aged Barolo with cinchona calisaya and many aromatic alpine herbs. A long maturation in oak barrels turns this aromatised wine into an elixir with little alcohol; the colour is an amber red with faint ruby tinge. Pleasing and inviting, it surprses for its spicy, intense and lingering fragrance. A unique product for real connoisseurs. Though there are many ways of serving it, we recommend it as an apéritif with soda water, bitter orange and some ice. Barolo Chinato – offered neat at the end of a meal – is an excellent digestive; warmed up with a twist of orange makes an excellent drink on cold winter evenings. Interesting match with dark chocolate-based desserts.
Serving temperature: 18 °C
