Paitin Barbaresco Sori Paitin Serraboella 2019
The Sorì Paitin belongs to the Pasquero-Elia heirs since 1796. It is the Serraboella warmest slope, graced with unique soils that, since ages, has been planted with Nebbiolo. Sorì means "the first place where the snow melts with the first winter sun rays." It's an ancient rule to select the best plots for Nebbiolo. Serraboella is the most famous cru in the Southern Neive. A long hill exposed to the West that gently bends towards South getting steeper. On this very side: the steepest and the warmest, the Barbaresco has a unique expression. Power, volume are laced by an elegant texture.

|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.|
|James Suckling: 93|
|A very pretty center palate and depth of fruit with ripe strawberries and citrus with some flowers as well. Medium to full body, very fine tannins and a tangy and fresh finish. Just a couple of years in bottle will render this beautiful.|
