Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Wild, brambly black cherries, crisp currants, and a kiss of blood orange dance with fresh loam, crushed herbs, pencil lead, baking spices and potpourri in the massive, intense ’16 Barbaresco Valeirano. Showing Barbaresco’s mesmerizing sauvage side, this wine fills the mouth with chewy, dense tannins, fine ripe fruits, penetrating acidity, and a sneaky minerality that lingers on the finish. Cellar for a few years and then enjoy for decades. This wine derives from 45 to 50-year-old Nebbiolo vines grown in the estate’s 7.41-acre Valeirano vineyard, a south-facing plot with calcareous rocky soil. After handpicking, the grapes ferment for about a week in temperature-controlled vats, and then age first in new oak barrique for 20 to 22 months, then stainless steel for three months, followed by a year in bottle before release.
