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.

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)

The 2019 Barbaresco Autinbej is a terrific entry-level offering from Ca' del Baio. Racy and vibrant in the glass, with terrific nuance, the 2019 is impressive. Vibrant red cherry fruit, cinnamon, blood orange and spice race out of the glass. There's terrific depth and translucence. Time in the glass brings out greater depth and textural intensity. Vineyard sources are Ferrere, Marcarini and a piece of Montersino.
