Coste di Rose is a prestigious hill facing east in the municipality of Barolo, right in front of the Bussia di Monforte. The considerable slope – over 40% – favours the perfect ripening of the Nebbiolo grapes, which are particularly demanding in terms of light and heat. It is located in the geological area of the Serravallian period, but, curiously, the quality of the soil is medium in limestone and is particularly rich in quartz sand and very fine silt, so much so that in normal cultivation operations fossil shells emerge. These peculiar characteristics give Nebbiolo intense and fine aromas, reminiscent of wild mint.


Barolo Coste di Rose is ruby-red in colour tending towards garnet. Its intense nose has distinct traces of roses, liquorice, spices and aromatic herbs, especially wild mint. The palate is full, elegant, and full-bodied. The delicate colour of this wine and its structure make it a Barolo that is immediately pleasant, balanced and harmonious. This wine is well-matched with typical appetisers from Langhe: raw meat, vegetable flan, eggs with truffles. It is also excellent with Tajarin (traditional Langhe egg pasta), roasts, sheep and goat’s milk and mildly seasoned cheeses.
