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 »

  • Vietti Nebbiolo Langhe DOC Perbacco 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Tasted between 3 to 6 hours of decanting. What a treat, with a nose full of black cherry, tobacco, new leather, and a bit of anise and undergrowth. The palate shows sour cherry, earth and citrus-prune on the mid palate. Medium bodied with a fresh but slightly tannic structure. Long finish with raspberry fruit. Simply put, this is one of the two ... Read More

  • Conterno Fantino Barbera d'Alba Vignota 2006

    Snoothrank:

    I just had this wine sitting at a nice hotel bar where they actually (gasp), didn't overprice their wines. Very drinkable as a cocktail all by itself. Wonderful nose, lucious black fruits, hint of minerality with bright acidity and a medium finish. Needed to open up a bit, decanting really helped. Great conversation wine. Read More

  • Andrea Oberto Barbera d'Alba 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This wine showed aromas of cherry and new leather on the nose. Leading to a palate full of cranberry, sour cherry, cedar and bitters. A medium bodied and easy drinking Barbera, made in a light style with crisp acidity, which gives it a very refreshing finish. Read More
