The grey and compact marls of the soils and the blue marls alternating with sand assemble their prerogatives of strength and structure in the wine, harmonizing them with elegance and perfume.

Cantina Della Porta Rossa currently doesn’t export to America because they have never met interested people. One of the reasons they joined in America Wines Awards 2020 is to find distributors who really knows the quality of wine and who knows that this costs. They are not exporting yet, for now, they are selling to some friends but are looking for people interested in their products… They are not only producing Barolo, but you will also find other wines on their website by clicking here.
