Brandini Barolo ‘R56’ | 2016

Importer NotesResa 56 (Yield 56) is in reference to the 56 quintals harvested for this wine. Typically Barolo DOCG allows for 80 quintals. This number was discovered after a hail storm in the 2010 vintage forced them to drop many damaged clusters. The result was a precise wine that they adored so they continued to make it with same yields in future years.
