Barbaresco is one of the undisputed princes of the Piedmontese wine tradition: the workhorse of the Langhe. Barbaresco has an ancient history, the roots of which go back to Imperial times, when the Romans began planting vines for wine production in the Cuneo area. According to some experts, these very vines cultivated over two thousand years ago are in some way the progenitors of today's Nebbiolo. The name 'Barbaresco' itself derives from 'Barbarica silva', indicating a Roman settlement in the area.
It was one of the first denominations recognised in Italy in 1966.
The Barbaresco "Vigna Montersino" comes from a sub-zone that extends on the side of a hill with a high wine vocation, located between Alba - San Rocco Seno d'Elvio - and Treiso.
It is aged in French oak barrels for 15 months, followed by a further 12 months in the bottle.
The colour is intense and brilliant, with nuances ranging from ruby red to garnet. The nose is delicate, with fruity but ethereal notes, reminiscent of raspberry, violet, aromas that combine with more austere and spicy ones, such as cinnamon, dried flowers, wood, toasted hazelnut, vanilla.
In the mouth, the flavour is full, robust, austere but velvety and harmonious, qualifying it as a wine of great prestige and excellence.
Like Barolo, it pairs admirably with dishes rich in the flavours and tastes of Piedmontese cuisine, as well as with the most refined combinations of international cuisine.
