Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red. On the nose, it is intense and fresh, with ripe blackberries and cherries, spicy notes and vanilla. On the palate, it is dry, soft, intense and quite fresh, with good intensity and persistence.

Pair with savory pasta dishes, white and red meat.

My Notes:

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.
