    "Sweet cherry and strawberry fruit is framed by earth, eucalyptus, tobacco and tar notes in this rich yet firm red" ~ Wine Spectator

    This beautiful Piatin Sori Paitin Barbaresco needs a few more years in the bottle to get to its proper readiness. Set it on a prominent shelf in your wine closet or cellar and spend the time wisely thinking about what you'll celebrate and pair with it. We think it will be perfect for carne cruda, raw beef or veal prepared the Piedmontese way, or with a rich foie gras appetizer. The beautiful caramelization on the foie gras when it's sauteed will be knee-weakeningly delicious with what will be lovely tannins in a few years. As for an entree, Barbarescos are notorious for their pairability with truffles. This Sori Paitin is no exception. Try it with tajaren (egg noodles) tossed with a butter sauce and Piedmontese white truffles. Pastas with dense, savory tomato sauces, with or without meat, baked or stovetop will work well with the warm, earthy side of this wine. A garlicky, grilled beef tenderloin with herbs will deliver mightily in terms of wow factor, and is actually a cinch to make. What will your excuse be to say Saluti a few years down the road winelovers?

    Wine Spectator:  "Sweet cherry and strawberry fruit is framed by earth, eucalyptus, tobacco and tar notes in this rich yet firm red. The assertive tannins suggest a glacial evolution but the lasting impression of fruit shows this wine's potential. Best from 2022 through 2040. 815 cases made." Mar 2019 (Advance)

    Winery: "Elegant, ample, very fine fruity notes, pomegranate, cherry, spices, rich, soft, warm, velvety, ripe tannins, long and persistent on the palate. Food pairing: elaborate meat dishes, veal, lamb, aged Piedmontese cheeses. 

    Historically this was the only place with Nebbiolo in the South of Neive. The soil here is very compact with respect to the rest of the hill. Is the highest and sunniest part of the hill. That is summarised by the Sorì name, from the local dialect. In 1893 we named our first Barbaresco out of the Nebbiolo from this plot. Dark, mysterious and inviting; all about allure."
