Colour/Taste/Aftertaste/Aroma/Gastronomy

Nebbiolo grapes grown on the calcareous-clayey soil of several vineyards located on sunny hilltops in Treiso and San Rocco Seno d’Elvio near Alba are blended in the very strictly-controlled, traditional making of this splendid red wine. Its aristocratic style is evident in its intense garnet-red colour with subtle tinges of orange, and its fruity (red fruit jam, withered violets and geraniums), ethereal, and spicy (cinnamon and green pepper) bouquet. It has a warm, dry, full-bodied taste packed with structure, and a long aromatic finish. Served in large crystal goblets it is a refined match for rich, demanding dishes, such as game, roast, stewed and braised red meats, and strong mature cheeses. Stored in bottles lying down in cellars underground, Barbaresco is capable, as are only few others, of withstanding the test of time, while maintaining its original characteristics.
