Barbaresco Riserva - Sorì Paitin Vecchie Vigne

Barbaresco Riserva
SORÌ PAITIN VECCHIE VIGNE

A “selezione massale” started from Secondo Pasquero Elia between 1948 and 1953 today express the most profound expression of the Sorì Paitin. The Sorì Paitin belongs to the Pasquero-Elia heirs since 1796. It is the Serraboella warmest slope, graced with unique soils that since ages is planted with Nebbiolo. Sorì means the first place where the snow melts with the first winter sun rays. Ancient rule to select the best plots for Nebbiolo. Serraboella is the most famous cru in the Southern Neive. A long hill exposed to West that gently bends towards South getting steeper. On this very side: the steepest and the warmest, our Barbaresco has a unique expression. Power, volume are laced by a elegant texture.
