Winemaker Notes

Garnet red color with a nose that is elegant and ample, with very fine fruity, pomegranate, cherry and spice aromas. The palate is rich, soft, warm, and velvety with sweet and ripe tannins. The finish is long and persistent.

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Sweet cherry, plum, eucalyptus, tar and underbrush notes intermingle in this lush, dense and beefy style. All the pieces are there, but this needs time to come together. Stays fresh and long. Best from 2018 through 2030.
JS 91
James Suckling
Fruity and delicious Barbaresco, yet remains delicate. Medium body, bright fruit and a clean finish. Light mineral and rose petal undertones. Drink now.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of toast, scorched earth, espresso and grilled herb come together on this structured Barbaresco. The palate is still young and a bit shy but eventually reveals dark cherry, white pepper, sage and tobacco accompanied by packed tannins that need to unwind. A licorice note signals the close.

Paitin  Winery Image

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.

A wine that most perfectly conveys the spirit and essence of its place, Barbaresco is true reflection of terroir. Its star grape, like that in the neighboring Barolo region, is Nebbiolo. Four townships within the Barbaresco zone can produce Barbaresco: the actual village of Barbaresco, as well as Neive, Treiso and San Rocco Seno d'Elvio.

Broadly speaking there are more similarities in the soils of Barbaresco and Barolo than there are differences. Barbaresco’s soils are approximately of the same two major soil types as Barolo: blue-grey marl of the Tortonion epoch, producing more fragile and aromatic characteristics, and Helvetian white yellow marl, which produces wines with more structure and tannins.

Nebbiolo ripens earlier in Barbaresco than in Barolo, primarily due to the vineyards’ proximity to the Tanaro River and lower elevations. While the wines here are still powerful, Barbaresco expresses a more feminine side of Nebbiolo, often with softer tannins, delicate fruit and an elegant perfume. Typical in a well-made Barbaresco are expressions of rose petal, cherry, strawberry, violets, smoke and spice. These wines need a few years before they reach their peak, the best of which need over a decade or longer. Bottle aging adds more savory characteristics, such as earth, iron and dried fruit.

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo, named for the ubiquitous autumnal fog (called nebbia in Italian), is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area, as well as in the neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it reaches its highest potential in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. Outside of Italy, growers are still very much in the experimentation stage but some success has been achieved in parts of California. Somm Secret—If you’re new to Nebbiolo, start with a charming, wallet-friendly, early-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba.
