Barolo, Barbaresco and Brunello are today amongst Italy’s best-known and most expensive wines. Whereas Barolo and Barbaresco from the Piedmont region in northwest Italy are made from the Nebbiolo grape varietal, Brunello comes from Tuscany in central Italy and is synonymous with wine produced with 100% Sangiovese grapes. In 1980, Brunello di Montalcino was awarded Italy’s first DOCG designation.
