Winemaker's Notes:

A defined red color expressing the elegance of the Nebbiolo with scents of violets and aromas of currant and red raspberry. This wine is complex and full bodied with nice tannins.

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.
