Autinbej Barbaresco 2018
Ca del Baio
$26.99 (US Low)One of the BEST SELLING wines in the shop this year and a HUGE rebuy for those that did buy it, this is one of the best red wine values BAR NONE out of the Piemonte right now! Drinkable now but with the stuffing to go 10 years easy.
Planting of vineyards: between 1957 and 1999
Type of soil: bluish clayey-limestone marl
Position: facing south-west
Harvest: between the end of September and the beginning of October (2015 was an earlier pick)
Vinification and Aging: The destemmed and pressed grapes ferment on the skins in temperature-controlled steel tanks for 5 to 30 days. The wine then matures in wood for 24 months, partly in oak casks and partly in small used French barrels, before continuing its aging in the bottle for 6 months.
