Hand-picked around mid-October in a selected area of the Basarìn vineyard 

VINIFICATION

Freshly-harvested grapes are destemmed and crushed. Fermentation is spontaneous in stainless steel tanks at 27°-28° C. Maceration with submerged head lasts about 30 days. Malolactic fermentation in steel tanks is spontaneous. The wine is naturally cold-stabilised. The first elevage is for approximately 24 months in large oak barrels (30 hl-50 hl). The wine is bottle-aged for 
about a further 18 months.

PRESENTATION

Available formats: 0.75 l and 1.5 l
Alcohol content 13.5%-15% by volume
Vivid garnet red developing intense orange highlights as the wine evolves. Blackberry and raspberry-scented nose. Surprising notes of balsam are also released.
The palate is enveloping and harmonious–a result of the contrast between the wine’s pleasing tannins and crispness.

WHEN

A wine to keep for special occasions, even for those well in the future. This is a wine that can wait!!

HOW

Store away from light in a dry place at a constant temperature below 20° C. Serve at 18°-20° C in a large-bowled (Barbaresco) glass, possibly with a flared rim to fully release the intense and complex nose. We recommend opening the bottle at least an hour before serving. 

CLASSIC PAIRING

Meat dishes such as stewed game, quail and roast guinea fowl. Mushrooms any which way. We suggest a salad of ovuli mushrooms (amanita caesarea) and porcini, a combination for real connoisseurs.

UNUSUAL PAIRING

Barbaresco is a wine for meditation and we recommend pairing it with dishes that require time and imagination. A curated plate of mixed aged cheeses chosen with care and curiosity. Try a dish of stewed lamb with potatoes. For an original dessert make blueberry biscuits to taste with it.
