Paitin Barbaresco Sori Paitin is garnet red in color. This wine has fragant, elegant, ample, and very fine fruity notes of pomegranate, cherry, and spices. The taste is rich, soft, warm, velvety and sweet with ripe tannins and long persistence.
"The 2008 Barbaresco Sori Paitin is graced with exceptional elegance and class. An exciting fabric of sweet dark cherries, flowers and spices emerges from this fragrant, polished Barbaresco. This mid-weight, feminine Barbaresco is terrific. It is another strong effort for the year. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026.
The Wine Advocate
"A juicy red, bursting with cherry, raspberry, underbrush and spice flavors. The balance is there, but this needs time to integrate more fully. A woodsy eucalyptus element emerges on the finish, with echoes of sweet fruit. Best from 2014 through 2025."
"Bright medium red. More pristine aromas than the Serra: red raspberry, cherry and rose petal, lifted by a stony element. Then suave, lush and clean in the mouth, with nicely integrated acidity giving shape and lift to the flavors of fruits and flowers. Lovely noble texture and balance here. Finishes with sweet, building tannins and a hint of leather. Silvano Pasquero-Elia is a fan of the 2008 Barbarescos, describing them as having "a lot of potential, maybe similar to 2001. The '09s are very nice, fresh, intense wines, with very ripe tannins compared to 2008.""
