The grapes used in the production of this wine come from vineyards located on nicely sloped hills, that are characterized by soil composed mainly of clay and limestone, moderate in structure, and covered with quartz sand and fine silt. These elements give the wine many mineral nutrients and a remarkable bouquet.
The wine ages one year in Slavonian oak barrels and French oak barrels, then it is blended in the traditional large Slavonian oak barrels. The wine completes its ageing in the bottle for some months before going onto the market. Barbaresco reaches maturity 3 years after being harvested and the peak condition is between 3 and 20 years.
The color is garnet red with ruby reflections. The aroma is intense and persistent with distinct traces of fruit, wild rose and spices. The taste is full and vigorous and yet harmonious and balanced with soft, delicate tannins.
This wine matches perfectly with tasty pasta dishes, pasta with ragout, meat filled ravioli, red meats, stews, braised meats and mildly-seasoned cheeses.
