Product details

The Nebbiolo grape from Piedmont produces wines of intense elegance, sometimes described as the “Wine of Tar and Roses.” Full-bodied with silky, elegant tannins, good acidity and complex aromas of juicy cherry, toasty oak and spice. The ideal companion for grilled or braised meats, it's outstanding with osso buco or a perfectly grilled steak.

Tasting notes: cherries, ripe red berries, violets, baking spice, leather, black licorice, truffles.

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 ?rm velvety tannins, a full body and a beautiful long-lasting ?nish. Pair with grilled or braised meat, mushroom risotto, Ragu Bolognese and mature cheeses.
