Rare Barolo Chinato

Remarkable Barolo-based bottlings

Barolo, the heart of the Langhe, is best known for its fine, elegant and age-worthy expressions of Nebbiolo. But alongside these dry reds, producers have long made aromatised fortified wines. Herbs and spices – including quinine (chinina in Italian) – are infused in neutral alcohol, which is then used to fortify the wine. If it is labelled as Barolo Chinato, the wine will be DOCG Barolo. We’ve curated a list of bottlings dating back to the 1970s – from producers including Conterno and Borgogno. Information about the exact cuvées is limited, but these wines are undeniably rare and collectable.

Marchesi di Barolo is widely regarded as one of the founders of the Barolo category. Like many of the region’s oldest producers, it has long produced aromatised fortified Barolo Chinato alongside its dry reds. The time in bottle has softened the aromatic flavours of rhubarb, gentian root and cardamom seeds, which are just some of the botanicals in the special recipe. We estimate this bottle is from the late 1970s or early 1980s. Please get in touch if you would like additional photographs to assess its condition.
