Barolo wines are produced within the DOCG boundaries of the Barolo region — within Piedmont in the northwest of Italy, sheltered by the Alps. The closest cities are Turin and Milan, and just nearby is Asti where the frothy, grapey muscat wines are made.
Barolo is as serious as Asti is frivolous, wonderful to have that juxtaposition. The region is also famous for its truffles, boar and what local chefs create when they combined the two, washed down with Barolo wine of course. It’s hilly, magical and beautiful, go there!
