- The Barolo Chinato flavored wine must be obtained from Barolo wine which has already completed the minimum period of aging and has passed the physical organoleptic physical examination prescribed by the production specification. The aromatization is carried out by cold infusion into a calcium solution of china calissaia, gentian root, cardamon seeds and other minor spices such as vanilla berries. The wine is then added to the aromatic infusion, sugar and alcohol to bring it to the gradient of 16.5% Vol and to the sugar content of 18% ideal for good product harmonization
- Aging of wine
- After its preparation, the Barolo Chinato is aged at least a year in barrels before being bottled and marketed, so that all aromatic parts of the infusions have the time to blend in a single homogeneous and harmonious feeling. With time it continues its refining in the bottle which increases its softness to taste and improves its aroma

In the heart of the Langhe, protected by gentle hills, is the winery of the Marquises of Barolo, whose history dates back to 1807, the year in which Carlo Tancredi Falletti married the French noblewoman Juliette Colbert of Maulévrier. The latter was the first that understood the potential of the Nebbiolo grape which, if well vinified and long refined in wood, offers powerful and austere wines, able to last and evolve over time. Detected at the end of the nineteenth century by Pietro Abbona, the estate, currently managed by the grandson of Pietro himself, Ernesto Abbona, can count on an immense legacy of about 65 hectares, from which great quality wines are born, destined to enrich season after season the story of a large cellar. Taking advantage of the favorable microclimatic conditions and the exceptional peculiarities of the territory, extraordinarily aromatic, pure and concentrated grapes are grown and harvested, which in the cellar are best interpreted by the now historical human experience. This is how labels with an unmistakable style come to life, strictly faithful to the terroir of belonging, wonderful interpreters of the diversity of the places and the typicality of the native vines.
