These vineyards only make up about 10% of the DOC Barolo, but they make a far larger percentage of the best known wine, and 100% of the village is entitled to produce Nebbiolo called Barolo.

But at like one fifth of the price.

A few weeks ago we got together and challenged ourselves to blind taste 3 wines in just 3 minutes. As always it was humbling and fun! This is just a small taste of us blind tasting CVNE's Monopole Classico because it inspired us to feature this wine in our Newsletter again. It is terrific!
