Michael will give us an insight into the producers, these historic vineyards and why these wines have become so iconic.
Giuseppe will take us back in time to 1836, the beginning of Barolo:
"To my palate, Barolo is the greatest wine in the world.I have always been intrigued about when and how it all started and why it took so long to be recognised"
