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 »

  • Oddero Barbera di Alba 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Iodine and iron on the nose - very metallic, yet rustic. Rich and well balanced. Good acidity, and worked well with braised steak, but not too searing. Nice flavors of black cherry. Surprisingly complex and brooding for a wine of this price. Recommended Read More

  • Brovia Dolcetto d'Alba Vignavillej 2007

    Snoothrank:

    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

    Snoothrank:

    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
