Barbaresco Wine

 

Barbaresco is one of the noble wines of Piedmont, in northwest Italy. It has a history dating back centuries, though it has drastically changed in style. Through the Middle Ages and Renaissance, it was fashionable for wines to have a touch of frothy sweetness. Although Nebbiolo has always been the base for Barbaresco, grapes such as Moscatello and Passeretto were blended in for this effect. 
 
Enter Domizio Cavazza, the proclaimed “Father of Barbaresco,” who became the first director of the Enological School of Alba (Italy’s oldest) in 1888. In 1894 he founded the first official Barbaresco cooperative with local landowners, and began producing the wine in the single varietal, dry style that we know and love. 
 
In 1933, the Barbaresco zone was officially delineated, and it became DOC in 1966, achieving DOCG, the superior status, in 1980. The four villages of Barbaresco are located in the Langhe along the Tanaro river and consist of Barbaresco, Nieve Read more »

One definite possibility is that she drank closer to the source from protected, rested bottles. Mine were subjected to whatever ravages of the trip halfway around the world. Didn't thin... Read More
