Barolo and Barbaresco Classification
An unofficial classification of the great vineyards of Barolo and Barbaresco, but one which is meticulous at the same time, fruit of twenty years of tasting, of discussions with producers in the zones, of bibliographical research, and above all, of on the spot observation and investigation in the very vineyards themselves.
A classification which does not claim to be “the truth” but rather a working proposal and, even more, an interpretation at the disposal of those who wish to deepen their knowledge. Or, in the case of neophytes, would like to have a tool which is rapid, clear, and effective for finding their way through the jungle of the many – often little known – crus of these two exceptional Italian appellations.
The book includes 12 simplified colored maps (eight for Barolo, four in the case of Barbaresco) which allow readers to situate each individual cru within its township and to perceive, at a glance, its quality level.
