Barbaresco

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.


Enjoy Barbaresco With:


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.


Meat: Full lamb & beef dishes and stews
