Winemaker Notes

Ruby purple color with dark cherries aromas with hints of mineral . A dry, full bodied red wine with refreshing acidity and soft tannins, well balanced with good integration of oak, good complexity and a long finish.

Wine Spectator
Pure and intense, this red evokes ripe plum, blackberry, spice and mineral aromas and flavors. Borders on racy, with taut structure and bracing acidity driving the long aftertaste of iron and leather. Drink now through 2020.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Barbera d’Alba Superiore Campolive stands out for its layered, sublime personality. This is an unusually laid back, refined vintage for the Campolive, a wine that is often much more exuberant. Sweet floral notes and a burst of dark cherries add lift on the finish. The 2010 was aged exclusively in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.

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.

An historic village situated right in between the famous regions of Barolo and Barbaresco, Alba is also the name for the larger wine region surrounding the village.

In a sense, “Alba” is a catch-all phrase, and includes the declassified Nebbiolo wines made in Barolo and Barbaresco, as well as the Nebbiolo grown just outside of these regions’ borders. In fact, Nebbiolo d’Alba is a softer, less tannic and more fruit-forward wine ready to drink within just a couple years of bottling. It is a great place to start if you want to begin to understand the grape. Likewise, the even broader category of Langhe Nebbiolo offers approachable and value-driven options as well.

Barbera, planted alongside Nebbiolo in the surrounding hills, and referred to as Barbera d’Alba, takes on a more powerful and concentrated personality compared to its counterparts in Asti.

Dolcetto is ubiquitous here and, known as Dolcetto d'Alba, can be found casually served alongside antipasti on the tables of Alba’s cafes and wine bars.

Not surprisingly, given its location, Alba is recognized as one of Italy’s premiere culinary destinations and is the home of the fall truffle fair, which attracts visitors from worldwide every year.

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.
