    Winemaker Notes

    Carlin de Paolo's Barbera has an intense ruby red with fair purple nuances. On the nose it is Intensely ethereal with a prevailing fruity nose of cherry, licorice, plums, violet, and blackberry. On the palate, it is tannic, full-flavored, dry, astringent and persistent with a balanced acidity. The wine is highly versatile, and pairs with roast meat, red meats such as carpaccio, game, and medium seasoned cheese.

    Carlin de Paolo Winery Image
    Carlin De Paolo is a fourth-generation family-owned winery with exclusively estate-produced wines. The Name Carlin de Paolo comes from two of the winery’s great patriarchs: Carlin and Paolo, Grandfather and great-grandfather, respectively. Paolo was an indefatigable worker, bent from the hard work carried out in the vineyards for many years. But he was always joyful; with his fist clenched as a sign of determination he was always striding forward.

    Carlin de Paolo’s labels depict Paolo as a representation of their winemaking philosophy. They believe that the best ingredient of a wine is the honesty of the producer; with patched trousers and an open heart, the man on their labels represents a life of sacrifices, a deep love for family, and a connection to the soil. It is this honesty and passion for winemaking that comes across in their beautiful wines.

    Recognized as the source of the best Barbera in all of Italy, Asti is a province (as well as major city) in Piedmont, consisting of a gentle, rolling landscape with vineyards, farmland and forests alternating throughout.

    Barbera d’Asti can be made in an array of styles from relatively straightforward, fruity and ready for consumption early, to the more concentrated, oak aged version with an ability to cellar impressively for 10-15 years and beyond. Some of the very best sites for Barbera in Asti are concentrated in the subzone of Nizza Monferrato. Other red varieties grown here include Freisa, Grignolino and Dolcetto, which can be bottled varietally or blended into Barbera.

    Historically consumers commonly associated the Asti region with Asti Spumante and Moscato d’Asti, both playful, aromatic, sparkling wines made from the Muscat grape. Asti Spumante is less sweet, fully fizzy and more alcoholic (yet still clocking in at only around 9% alcohol) while Moscato d’Asti is sweeter, gently sparkling (“frizzante”) and closer to 5 or 6% alcohol. Each is produced in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh and fruity flavors of the grape, often including peach, apricot, lychee and rose petal. Asti is also the spot for the pink-hued Brachetto d'Acqui, a slightly sparkling wine ready to charm with its raspberry and rose flavors and aromas.

    Friendly and approachable, Barbera produces wines in a wide range of styles, from youthful, fresh and fruity to serious, structured and age-worthy. Piedmont is the most famous source of Barbera; those from Asti and Alba garner the most praise. Barbera actually can adapt to many climates and enjoys success in some New World regions. Somm Secret—In the past it wasn’t common or even accepted to age Barbera in oak but today both styles—oaked and unoaked—abound and in fact most Piedmontese producers today produce both styles.
