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 »

    Wine review by Jeremy Block

  • Brovia Dolcetto d'Alba Vignavillej 2007


    Barbera is normally a good, light, highly acidic fruit driven red wine that is ... the heystorm of Barolo and Barbaresco infatuation. Brovia steps up to the plate in their "Sori del Drago" and delivers a knock out punch. This is an ultra serious wine, that doesn't mess around. Incredibly pretty with violets notes laced all around it. Succu... Read More

  • Stefano Farina Barbera d'Alba 2006


    Bright plum color, black cherries, plums and road dust aromas precede to dark stone fruit, tar and tobacco notes and a long, structured finish. With aeration this wine really offers so much more of everything. Read More

    Write your review here, and rate the wine from 1 to 5 glasses above.Everything has its time and place. I am completely convinced that the Tanzer rating on this wine is a mistake as the tasting notes don't even come close to what's in this bottle but like I said, everything has it's time and place. The nose shows blackberry jam, vanilla, black li... Read More

  • Snooth Friends from all over, unite!I have this serious doubt I need you to ... this bottle of wine, it´s a Barbaresco Fontafredda 1974, a traditional and old nebbiolo, and my doubt is about how long should I open it up before drinking. The problem is that opinions may diverge widely. Some people believe that this is probably now a very fragil... Read More
