Barolo, possibly Italy's greatest and the most prestigious wine, is made with hard-to-grow Nebbiolo grapes, on the hills surrounding the town of Barolo, in the Piedmont Region. Barolo is often described as a wine of mystery that needs time to be explored and understood.
Our Houston location had the most amazing night last Friday. A great crowd, amazing food and fantastic wines from Majestic Fine Wines, introduced by Vito Parente, Italian Import Specialist and Wine Connoisseur. We abducted him for a late night chat before he got back to Napa.
