Paitin di Pasquero-Elia 'Sori Paitin Serraboella', Barbaresco DOCG, Italy 2020

VINTAGE : 2020


REGION/APPELLATION : Italy, Barbaresco

VARIETALS : Nebbiolo

Paitin’s distinctiveness resides in the expression of this rooted relation that our family – Pasquero-Elia – has established within these lands. Resisting wars and severe weather, through 8 generations, we grown an everlasting bond.

Perseverance blessed the Grand Cru vineyard (MGA) of Serraboella: the Sorì Paitin, since 1893 to become one of the traditional expressions of Neive’s Barbaresco.

Our Barbaresco comes from these great lands. It therefore essential an ethical perspective. Respecting what has been, what is and what will be. To preserve its uniqueness.

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.

"In the local dialect, a "sorì" refers to the top of a hill that gets the most sunlight. The 2020 Barbaresco Serraboella Sorì Paitin is a special selection of fruit from a pinpoint area within this greater cru site in the village of Neive. Certified for organics, it does indeed show slightly riper and sweeter fruit, which is expected given the very warm temperatures seen during this growing season. This wine does not have the same austerity that we get in the wider selection from Serraboella. Instead, this bottle offers a softly layered expression with cassis, red rose, peony, apricot, spice and iodine." Wine Advocate 94+
