Barbaresco

Barbaresco is known for being one of Italy’s most popular wines. It pairs brilliantly with dishes like pasta topped with tomato sauces and offers aromas of roses, perfume, and cherry sauce. Barbaresco vines don’t produce as much tannin as found in some other wines in the region due to the soil being richer in nutrients. Though both Barolo and Barbaresco utilize the Nebbiolo grape – and the fact that they are produced less than 10 miles from each other – Barolo should not be confused with Barbaresco. Its closer situation to the Tanaro River allows the latter's grape to ripen earlier and fare better during hotter years. At a mere 1,823 acres, Barbaresco’s growing zone is small and produces an average of 4.5 million bottles per year. The wine must be aged for a minimum of two years, though its taste softens after a few years and ages magnificently for ten years or more.
