Winery: A “selezione massale” started from Secondo Pasquero Elia between 1948 and 1953 today express the most profound expression of the Sorì Paitin. 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.

VINEYARD: Sourced from selection massale vines in the Sori Paitin section of the Serraboella cru in Neive facing south-southwest at 290 to 310 meters elevation.
SOIL: Sand and marl stratification called Formazioni di Lequio
VITICULTURE: Hand-harvested. Practicing organic. Practicing biodynamic.
WINEMAKING: Nebbiolo is all vinified with the same philosophy: subject to pressing and destemming it ferments and macerates from 3 to 6 weeks in stainless steel, then it finishes the maceration with submerged cap pigeage.
AGING: Aged in old neutral wood barrels for 30 months or 3 entire years when his structure asks. Barrels volume vary between 25 to 50 hectoliters depending on the harvest, made of Slavonian and Austrian oak with an age of 15 years. Of this wine one only barrel is produced per year.

96 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Paitin 2016 Barbaresco Serraboella Riserva Sorì Paitin Vecchie Vigne is a gorgeous wine. The bouquet is especially redolent of dried rose and potpourri, and the dark fruit offers highlights of baked cherry or peach. This amazing crescendo of new releases from Paitin goes one impressive step further, pushing the boundaries with this promising and cellar-worthy new release. There is a point of bitter almond on the close, but the mouthfeel is otherwise silky and very fine in texture. Exactly 5,281 bottles were released.
