Winemaker Notes

Barbaresco Serra shows the elegance of the Nebbiolo with aromas of violets, currant, and red raspberry. The wine is complex, and full bodied with nice tannins.

Ideal with grilled food, sauced meat and wild game, and medium aged cheese.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling
Beautiful core of ripe fruit to this giving a strawberry and cherry character on the nose and palate. Medium body, firm and silky tannins. Pretty and pure. Better in 2018 but beautiful now.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Offers lovely perfume, evoking rose, cherry, strawberry, licorice and spice aromas and flavors. Firm and taut, with assertive yet finely grained tannins lending support. Best from 2020 through 2032.
V 90
Vinous
Crushed flowers, raspberries, dried rose petal, mint and sweet spices are some of the signatures in Paitin's 2013 Barbaresco Serra. Soft, feminine and gracious in style, the 2013 offers lovely overall balance, striking inner perfume and tons of near-term appeal. A closing burst of energy on the finish adds to the wine's considerable appeal. Paitin gave the Serra 18 months in cask. The decision to remove seeds has yielded an especially soft, easygoing wine that can be enjoyed young.

Paitin, Barbaresco, Piedmont, Italy
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.

Barbaresco

View all wine

Often compared to Barolo but worthy of its own separate conversation, Barbaresco is home to the softer side of Nebbiolo. For a long time, consumers viewed Barbaresco as a more affordable alternative to the wines of neighboring Barolo, but advances in viticulture and resulting improvements in quality have allowed this region to build a superior reputation all its own. With a warmer, drier, and milder climate and compact, fertile soils, the wines here are powerful yet soft, fruit-forward, and elegantly perfumed. Barbaresco needs some time to mature before being ready to drink, but less so than Barolo, and the typical bottle is best enjoyed between five and 15 years from the harvest.

Barbaresco wines are highly aromatic and complexly flavored, with notes of rose petal, cherry, strawberry, violets, and spice. Bottle aging can add more savory characteristics of iron and tar, as well as dried orange peel. Four villages within the Barbaresco DOCG zone can produce Barbaresco: the actual village of Barbaresco, as well as Neive, Treiso and San Rocco Seno d'Elvio.

Nebbiolo

View all wine

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area as well as in neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it is at its best in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo is a finicky grape, and needs a very particular soil type in order to thrive. Outside of Italy, it often fails to show the captivating aromas for which it is so beloved, but some success has been achieved in parts of California.

In the Glass

Nebbiolo is an elegant variety with mouthwatering acidity and a compelling perfume of rose petals, violets, fresh tar, licorice, clay, and dried cherries. Light in color and body, Nebbiolo is a more powerful wine than one might expect, and its firm tannins typically need time to mellow. With age, it develops a velvety texture and a stunningly complex bouquet.

Perfect Pairings

Nebbiolo’s love affair with food starts in Piedmont, which is home to the Slow Food movement and some of Italy’s best produce. The region is famous for its white truffles and wild boar ragu, both of which make for excellent pairings with Nebbiolo.

Sommelier Secret

If you can’t afford to drink Barolo and Barbaresco every night, try the more wallet-friendly, earlier-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba. Also search out the fine offerings of the nearby Roero region. North of the Langhe and Roero, find earthy and rustic versions of the variety (known here as “Spanna”) in Ghemme and Gattinara.
