Perhaps not a wine you’re overly familiar with, Barberesco is seen as the ‘elegant cousin’ of the more famous Barolo. A small but perfectly formed region in Piedmont, with Barolo to its south.
There are unmistakable similarities between Barolo and Barbaresco - both are 100% Nebbiolo and share their homes in rolling, foggy landscape at the foothills of the Alps, but they say if Barolo is the King of wines, then Barbaresco is the Queen. We find that there can be a greater finesse to these wonderfully expressive wines. They are also known to be more approachable in youth than Barolo, whilst still displaying that lip-smacking acidity and tannin so characteristic of the Nebbiolo grape.
This delightful DOCG wine shows clasic notes of sour cherry, strawberry leather, cherry jam and forest-fruit compote. Floral tones of pot-pourri and violets lift the wine, and deliver something ethereal and memorable.
