Barbaresco & Barolo Photos – Piedmont, Italy

Barolo and Barbaresco defy the usual adjectives: robust, delicate, perfumed, timeless … and that’s just the wine. Traveling through this land of rolling hills, rustic forest and sophisticated wine and food is an exercise in sensory hedonism.

This collection of images centers on the towns of La Morra, Barolo, Monforte d’Alba, Diano d’Alba, Barbaresco and the city of Alba.
