Ca del Baio's most traditional-style Barbaresco is grown on the vineyards that surround the winery, and is aged – as in the past – only in big casks. It represents the elegance of Barbaresco at its very best, without flaunting the muscle of Nebbiolo.

Grape-variety: 100% Nebbiolo

VINIFICATION AND AGEING is traditional stem-free on-the-skins fermentation for 7 to 15 days in steel at a controlled temperature. The wine matures for 24 months in casks made of Slavonian oak, and is then cellared for 6 months in the bottle prior to release.

TASTING PROPERTIES Garnet red; nose intense, with powerful fruit, dried flowers and underbrush; taste dry, smooth and rounded, ending in a warm finish with nicely-balanced tannins.

PAIRINGS a natural match for roast and terrine meats, mature cheeses and fondues, meat and vegetable soups

Serving Temperature: 18°C

STORING already soft and elegant 3 years after the vintage, it continues to develop for up to 10-15 years. Cellaring recommended with the bottle lying down in the dark at a constant temperature.
