About Cozzo Mario
The winery has its roots in the first half of the nineteenth century. It rises on the gentle hills of Dogliani, in the Langhe, a land of great wines. The vineyard area, mostly cultivated in Dolcetto, covers about ten hectares and the vineyards are located at altitudes ranging between 440 and 490 meters above sea level. The historical documentation shows that Napoleon, during the conquest of these lands, was a guest of Cascina Lasagna since the King’s secretary, guardian of the city’s keys, resided there. This historical fact originates the choice of the key wedged in the letter “C” to replace the emblem.
Barolo wine is so revered that it was one of just three wines awarded DOCG status on the day that the classification was introduced in July 1980. (The other two were Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano). To the northeast of Barolo, just the other side of Alba, are the vineyards that produce another stellar Nebbiolo wine, Barbaresco.
The hallmarks of the wine are a “tar and roses” aroma, bright ruby color (which fades to garnet over time), firm tannins, elevated acidity, and relatively high alcohol (often 14.5 or 15 percent abv). As the tannins soften over time, the complexity shows through with hints of earth, truffles, and dark chocolate.
Despite the differences in the various terroirs in the region and winemaking differences these key qualities tend to be consistent features in most Baroli. Other Nebbiolo wines from Piedmont can taste very similar, but otherwise, Barolo is one of the most distinctive red wines in production.
