Barbaresco Wine Information

Barbaresco is a red wine and in a way the younger brother of Barolo. Both of these red wines are made in the Piedmont area of Italy, and made from the nebbiolo grape.

While Barolo wines are rich and thick, Barbaresco wines are more elegant and aromatic, though still powerful. Also, while Barolo wines have been around for centuries, the Barbaresco heritage is only a few hundred years old. The Barbaresco area is much smaller than the Barolo area, only 1,200 acres being planted. Barbarescos are aged for a year in wood and is great from 5-10 years of age.

Barbaresco should be served at 60F and pairs well with grilled meats.
