Description

Barbaresco DOCG"Monciraldo"

Barbaresco is considered one of Piedmont’s greatest wines, on par with Barolo. It is a wine that benefits from a period of aging in oak barrels: the wood favors both strength and smoothness, complexity and balance, guaranteeing a harmonic evolution over the years. This wine’s particular vinification style makes it drinkable at a relatively young age, yet it has the potential to evolve for years to come. The result is a rich, full, and smooth wine with great structure.

Type of Grape
Nebbiolo

The pride of Piedmont, Nebbiolo is the backbone of the best Barolo and Barbaresco wines. The berries are black, medium-sized, round-elliptic, thin but with a tough, dark purple skin and a waxy appearance. Nebbiolo wines are often distinctively perfumed with an aroma described as "tar and roses", along with a moderate body, strong, tannic backbone and high, fresh acidity.

The region
Barbaresco – Piemont

One of Piedmont's greatest wine regions, Barbaresco is one among the best expressions of the Nebbiolo grapes. The vines are generally grown on limestone-rich marl soils on steep, "pre-alpine" hills – a characteristic of the region. The vineyards are situated to best "ensure a suitable ripening of the grapes", effectively meaning most Barbaresco vineyard sites have some (if not an entire) southerly exposure.
