Now expanded into a even more detailed atlas of Italy’s legendary Barolo wine region, this second edition of this invaluable book offers a fascinatingly detailed tour of the 11 townships which constitute the officially recognized Barolo DOC appellation. Distinguished by more than 220 maps, many of them using topographical perspective, Barolo MGA takes a deep dive into geo-viticultural analysis.
Through its focus on the MGA, or Menzione Geografica Aggiuntiva, intricately delineated place names within the appellation, this book offers uncommon insights into the subtleties of Barolo wines. Supported by fact sheets production statistics for 170 vineyards, explanations and history for over 700 place names, brand names, historic zones, and a vintage chart from 1967 to the present, this is a deeply useful resource.
