Paitin Barbaresco Sori Paitin Serraboella 2019
Elegant nose of pomegranate, cherry, and spices. The mouth is rich, soft, warm, and velvety, with ripe tannins and length.
Paitin traces its history to 1796 when Benedetto Elia purchased the farmstead with outlying wine cellar and vineyards from Luigi Pellissero . His son Giuseppe later extended the vineyards and acquired the underground cellar, which dates to the 15th century.
Barbaresco del Sori Paitin was first produced in 1893, and was first exported in 1898. Secondo Pasquero-Elia took over management in 1965, building a new wine cellar, gradually replanting vineyards, and acquiring new vines.

|This red has a mineral streak running through it, with a distinctive graphite note permeating the cherry and raspberry core, plus earth, tobacco and menthol accents that add depth. Plays out on the finish with a taut, linear profile.

|Opening to a luminous garnet color, the Paitin 2019 Barbaresco Serraboella Sorì Paitin is delicate and fresh, but the wine is not without its inner power and consistency. It plays its cards carefully, thanks to a slow-moving bouquet characterized by redcurrant and tart cherry. It gains power on the palate with polished tannins and tight structure. Give this bottle a few more years to unwind. Best After 2025.
