Italy's Crown Jewel

The Crus of Barolo

First Growths

The “Cru Barolos” are considered the jewels in the crown of Italy’s Piedmont wine region. The Nebbiolo-based wines from the crus unveil an intimate and delectable expression of the region’s terroir. The hallmark vineyards to look for are located in the famous crus of La Morra, Serralunga d’Alba, Monforte d’Alba, Barolo, and Castiglione Falleto. These crus are an intricate combination of changing slopes, diverse aspects, altitudes, microclimates, and unique soil compositions. Distinctive in their winemaking choices, each famed Barolo cru producer creates prestigious bottlings that showcase critical elements of bold fragrance, elegance, and depth. Nebbiolo’s imposing tannic backbone and vibrant acidity provide flawless balance and an age-worthy structure. 

Benchmark is proud to offer the finest producers of the designated cru wines, such as Conterno, Massolino, Pio Cesare, Giacosa, Mascarello, and many more of Barolo’s leading names. If you relish layers of intense, full-bodied notes of rose, cherry, cinnamon, licorice, and coffee – you should not pass up the wines from the crus of Barolo!
