Barbaresco is an aromatic, elegant wine made from the Nebbiolo grape – the younger brother of Barolo. These wines tend toward a bouquet of violets, smoke and rose-like perfumes with flavors of cherry, truffle, fennel and licorice. Nebbiolo wines are the lightest, Barbaresco is moderate and Barolo is the big, full grand-daddy requiring deep appreciation and long aging. It is a big wine.

Nebbiolo-based wines tend to do best when their rich, full flavors are paired with rich, full foods. Being Italian wines, they also contain a moderate acidity that goes well with acidic dishes.
