Marchesi di Barolo
Protected by the gentle Langhe hills, are the Cantine dei Marchesi di Barolo, whose history begins over two centuries ago, more precisely in 1807, when Carlo Tancredi Falletti married the French aristocrat Juliette Colbert of Maulévrier. She was the first to understand Nebbiolo grape’s potential, for which she had magnificent cellars built, in order to allow for complete fermentation and aging in large fine oak barrels.
Acquired at the beginning of the 20th century by Pietro Abbona, the Cantine dei Marchesi di Barolo are now managed by Anna and Ernesto Abbona who, together with their children Valentina and Davide, act as true interpreters of the diversity of places and native vines, thoroughly respecting and preserving their typicality, thanks to the vinification of grapes from its own vineyards and from contributing winemakers selected over many years of activity.
Abbona family’s mission is to combine tradition and evolution, proposing in a contemporary key, according to the food and wine trends of the most authentic and refined Made in Italy, high quality wines destined to enrich the history of a great winery, in to which an important heritage of vineyards, cellars and knowledge has been handed down for more than five generations.
