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 landscapes is lush with valleys full of vines, with many sunny slopes reserved for the prized Nebbiolo grape. Te 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.
Widley regarded as one of Italy's top wines, the Bararesco 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 beautiful long-lasting finish. Pair with grilled or braised meat, mushroom risotto, Ragu Bolognese and mature cheeses.
