2018 Paitin Sori Paitin Barbaresco Serraboella Riserva
2018 Paitin Sori Paitin Barbaresco Serraboella Riserva The family that owns the Paitin estate lost its patriarch, Secondo Pasquero Elia, as this wine was being readied for release, and he would have been proud of the way this turned out. The 2018 Barbaresco Serraboella Sorì Paitin is glossy and polished with a super fine and delicate quality of fruit. It just glides over the palate as if it were on skates. That beautiful forward momentum is driven by light cassis, dried cherry, iron skillet, candied orange peel and crushed flowers. The finish is exceptionally smooth and elegant. Complimenti.
The Sorì Paitin belongs to the Pasquero-Elia heirs since 1796. It is the Serraboella warmest slope, graced with unique soils that since ages is planted with Nebbiolo. Sorì means the first place where the snow melts with the first winter sun rays. Ancient rule to select the best plots for Nebbiolo. Serraboella is the most famous cru in the Southern Neive. A long hill exposed to West that gently bends towards South getting steeper. On this very side: the steepest and the warmest, our Barbaresco has a unique expression. Power, volume are laced by a elegant texture. Winemaker

The Wine Advocate comments, “These wines from Luca Pasquero Elia and his family are some of my favorites in this entire report. The Paitin portfolio shows an unmistakable magic, across the board, with these new releases. They are accessible and most importantly, relatable.” We have tiny amounts available, very hard to get, for the cognoscenti aficionado.
