Winemaker's Notes:

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.

About Paitin:

The history of Paitin begain in 1796 when Benedetto Elia bought this estate with its wine cellar and vineyards. his son Guiseppe enlarged the vineyards and later bought the underground cellars, which date to the 1400s.

Since 1898 we have been exporting wine and since 1893 we have been producing Barbaresco del Sori Paitin.

In 1965 Secondo Pasquero restarted the winery and built a new cellar and replanted the vineyards and bought more as well.
