Paitin Barbaresco Sori Paitin 1999

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

This was the first year fruit from these old vines was bottled separately. Deep red-ruby. Aromas of roasted strawberry, earth, smoke and mint. Smooth on entry, then chewy and deep in the middle, with a note of camphor. Easier to taste today than the normale owing to its sheer depth of texture. Finishes warm, rich and long, with tannins nicely supported by the winersquo;s strong material. Very impressive Barbaresco, from thoroughly ripe fruit.

Attractive wild berry aromas and hints of minerals. Medium-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a chewy, fruity finish. Rather tight right now, but shows very good potential. Best after 2006.
