UK-exclusive, old vine Barbaresco Riserva made with selected grapes from the winemaker’s family vineyard in Neive

This elegant wine is made from Nebbiolo – supercharged with powerful tannins, it’s the signature grape of Piemonte. The Riserva wine is only made in exceptional years, from carefully selected grapes. To achieve its high status, the wine was aged for 36 months in French oak casks and barrels, then refined in the bottle in the winemaker’s cellar. The lengthy ageing process has softened and developed the powerful tannins of Nebbiolo, ensuring that the 2014 vintage is already enjoyable. Drink now, or age up to 12 years to unveil the full potential of this renown wine.

Sustainable winemaking: This wine is produced following the “Green Experience” system. This is a new set of rules for eco-friendly grape-growing. It started in Piedmont, where winemakers decided that the traditional organic laws don’t provide enough protection for the environment. It already unites more than 100 vineyards, including renowned producers of Barolo and Barbaresco.

Tasting notes: Deep red garnet colour. Pronounced aromas of dried fruit, strawberry, tobacco, vanilla and leather. Dry and full-bodied, with a high level of alcohol and velvety tannins, balanced with a high acidity and expressive flavours of fruit and spice.

Ageing potential: 12 years

    Classic strawberry led nose, characteristic Barbaresco taste, well balanced. Real depth of flavour too. Lovely wine, a little more expensive but worth it.
