Transparent ruby-red colour tending to garnet with aging. The nose expresses great elegance and finesse, with floral notes of violets and red berries, ethereal notes and delicate spiced nuances. On the palate it is balanced and full-bodied with velvet tannins and a pleasant freshness. Its finishing is long and lingering. This wine has good potential for aging and reaches the maturity only after 5-10 years of aging.
Barbaresco has an old story to tell. Though the grapes were not yet the Nebbiolo ones, the genetic mutations – which had already started by that century – would have it modified as a result. By the 1.200 century the grape variety in question had been named Nebiùl and original documents show it as having been planted as far as Pinerolo, making it the most precious Piedmonteses grape.
