Description

Its vineyards are situated in the Langhe, on the right-hand side of the Tanaro river and extending from the area northeast of Alba to the communes of Barbaresco, Neive and Treiso, as well as a portion of the commune of San Rocco Senodelvio (once part of the Barbaresco municipality but now part of Alba).

 

The vines are generally grown on limestone-rich marl soils (similar to the Tortonium soils of the Barolo and La Morra areas in Barolo) on steep, "pre-alpine" hills – a characteristic of the region. The vineyards are situated to best "ensure a suitable ripening of the grapes", effectively meaning most Barbaresco vineyard sites have some (if not an entire) southerly exposure.

 

Barbaresco (by law) can only be made from Nebbiolo. Dolcetto and Barbera are also found within the growing zone, but are used for other wine designations.

The variety is the superstar grape variety behind the top-quality red wines across northwestern Italy, and in particular, the heady, powerful reds of Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo wines are often distinctively perfumed with an aroma described as "tar and roses"; along with a moderate body; strong, tannic backbone; and high, fresh acidity. Top examples are much coveted and can command high prices.

 

Tasting note: "Showing structure and an earthy elegance, this opens with aromas of leather, forest floor, camphor and pipe tobacco. The firm, full-bodied palate offers dried cherry, blood orange and liquorice alongside assertive tannins before closing on a note of rusty nail."
