Barberesco is one of the undisputed princes of the Italian winemaking tradition. Known and recognized all over the world, it is the workhorse of the Langhe, together with Barolo. It was one of the first denominations recognized in Italy in 1966.
The Barbaresco “Vigna Montersino” comes from a sub-area that extends on the slope of a hillside with a high wine vocation, located astride the border of Alba – San Rocco Seno d’Elvio hamlet – and Treiso.
Refinement takes place in 500 and 700-liter French oak barrels for 15 months, followed by a further 12 months in bottle.
The color is intense and bright, with nuances that fade from ruby red to garnet. The nose is delicate, with fruity yet ethereal notes, which recall raspberry, violet, aromas that combine with the more austere and spicy ones, such as cinnamon, dried flowers, wood, toasted hazelnut, vanilla.
In the mouth the full, robust, austere but velvety and harmonious flavor qualifies it as a wine of great prestige and excellence.
Like Barolo, it goes admirably with dishes rich in flavors and tastes of Piedmontese cuisine, as it is found in the most refined combinations of international cuisine.
