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.

 

Tasting note: "Structured but also loaded with finesse, this opens with earthy aromas of truffle, blue wildflowers, new leather and ripe dark-skinned berries. Juicy and delicious, the full-bodied palate doles out succulent Morello cherry, crushed raspberry and licorice before closing on a hint of tobacco. Noble tannins and fresh acidity provide the firm framework and balance. Give it plenty of time to fully develop."
