Piedmont boasts a rich cultural and winemaking
history going back to the Middle Ages and is home to
Italy’s most revered red wines. Located at the foot of
the Alps, the region’s hilly landscape is lush with
valleys full of vines, with many sunny slopes reserved
for the prized Nebbiolo grape. The continental climate
sees long, hot summers but thick morning fogs
commonly roll through the valleys bringing cooler air.
This rhythm of rising and falling temperatures slows
the ripening of the Nebbiolo grapes, resulting in
aromatic wines high in acid, alcohol and tannin –
prized attributes of the Barbaresco wine style.
Widely regarded as one of Italy’s top wines, the
Barbaresco style is undeniably delicious. Made with
Nebbiolo, Piedmont’s most respected and most loved
red wine grape, this wine exudes intense aromas of
juicy cherry combined with toasty oak and spice.
The sumptuous palate seduces with cherry and ripe
red berries, licorice, baking spice, leather and earthy
notes. It boasts balance and structure with firm
velvety tannins, a full body and a beautiful
long-lasting finish. Pair with grilled or braised meat,
mushroom risotto, Ragu Bolognese and mature.
