Varietal Nebbiolo from one of Piedmont’s most legendary producers. Hailing from Paje, one of Barbaresco’s top crus, loaded with limestone rich, calcareous marl soils. Fruit from old vines goes into this special cuvée, adding concentration and depth to this complex Barbaresco. Aged in neutral oak botti for about five years; intensely floral nose, concentrated palate, full of herbs, licorice, and minerality. Usually less than 825 cases are produced.
This tartly tannic, headily fragrant, beguilingly complex king of Italian red grapes is brimming with bright fruit and earthy funk -- in versions ranging from explosive (Barolo) to ethereal (Valtellina).
