Barolo Chinato is a product born in the back rooms of pharmacies and "colonial shops" between the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 1900s, probably inspired by an ancient habit of using spiced wine as a medicine against slight forms of malaise. The idea of transforming a noble wine like Barolo into a herbal treatment can be ascribed to a pharmacist from Monforte: Doctor Giuseppe Cappellano.
Tasting notes: Garnet red with elegant orange reflections. Intense, complex, and very persistent aroma, typically spicy with notes of aromatic herbs. The hints of bitter orange and coriander are particularly clear. The flavor is full, pleasantly sweet with a long bitter finish.
Pairings: After a meal, digestive, excellent to accompany bitter chocolate.
