Notes from Pio Cesare:
"Little barks of China Calissaja and Succirubra are macerated for 21 days in a small amount of our classic Barolo. We then add a mixture of aromatic herbs, such as gentian roots, rhubarb, cardamom seeds, sweet and bitter orange, cinnamon and others, which all together compose our Family Recipe. Then, after a few weeks of ageing, we add the proper amount of our classic Barolo, a bit of sugar and alcohol.
This infusion is finally aged for at least 4 months in very small stainless-steel tanks. After an additional 2 months of rest in bottle, our Barolo Chinato is ready to be enjoyed in the old “piemontese style”, after the meals as a digestif".
