Piazzo's Barolo Valente DOCG is a wine that enchants from the first sip. Produced in the most renowned Langhe region in Piedmont, this Barolo is an exquisite example of what Nebbiolo can offer. On the nose, intense notes of red berry fruit and violet are perceived, an olfactory triptych that prepares the palate for a unique sensorial experience. In the mouth, the wine is linear and offers nuances of cherry plum and spices, underlined by a well-balanced and soft tannic grain. Aging in large oak barrels and barriques adds an extra layer of complexity, making this Barolo an excellent option for those looking for a wine with good aging potential. Ideal to be enjoyed on special occasions, it pairs beautifully with robust dishes such as braised meats and mature cheeses.

The Piazzo Comm. Armando winery was founded in the 1960s by Armando Piazzo and Gemma Veglia in San Rocco Seno d'Elvio, a hamlet in the Municipality of Alba. To date, the company can count on 70 hectares of vineyards in the municipalities of Mango, Neviglie, Guarene and Novello. The winemaking philosophy respects tradition especially for the production of Barolo and Barbaresco but with particular attention to cleanliness and innovation. In the cellar, the effort is at its maximum to make the most of the raw material, fruit of the sacrifices and work carried out in the vineyard. The wines produced are the soul of the territory, they stand out for their perfumed bouquets on the nose, with great body and structure but balanced and elegant on the palate.
