Produced in Barbaresco, Treiso and Neive, Barbaresco is one of the great wines of Piemonte. Cultivated in Piedmont since the 13th century, Nebbiolo plays a principal role in the winemaking culture of the region. It is a late maturing grape which is very sensitive to different soils and climates, resulting in a fascinating range of flavors that are affected by the subtleties of the area's microclimates. While much smaller than the Barolo area, Barbaresco benefits from the influence of the Tanaro river which results in Nebbiolo that ripens earlier and has a lighter character. Color: Classic Barbaresco. Bouquet: Scent of spices, pepper and black cherries. Flavor: Powerful, firm, elegant and ethereal. Pairings: Pairs well with egg pastas, risottos, white meats, poultry, red meats, game, venison and aged cheese.

Wine SpectatorA graceful and detailed red, marked by ripe cherry, strawberry, floral and tar flavors, with the fruit intensity persisting on the finish, showing excellent length. This is well-integrated and just needs time for the tannins to soften. Best from 2018 through 2030. 2,333 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe delicious 2011 Barbaresco is a very well-integrated and balanced wine that shows an impressive level of elegance. Soft oak spice is fused with red berry fruit and balsam herb. You feel some of the heat of the vintage in the ripeness of the fruit, but those qualities never subtract from the wine's overall harmony. Soft fruit flavors are woven between tight tannins and long persistence.

Wine EnthusiastAlways one of the best quality-for-value wines in Italy, this classic Barbaresco delivers quintessential Nebbiolo sensations of rose, black cherry, red berry, cinnamon and a hint of leather. It's friendly, with firm, round tannins and just enough fresh acidity. Drink now-2020.
