WINE ENTHUSIAST 96 POINTS - " "There's always something magical about Gaja's Sorì San Lorenzo. It’s the intensity and fullness of the wine that penetrates to the back of the palate and offers many long minutes of persistency on the finish. The bouquet is redolent of black fruit, leather, spice, tar, licorice and dried herb."

the Nebbiolo grape under the direction of Gioachino De Forville. The exceptional Loreto “cru” of Barbaresco is the source for this most profound wine of the De Forville estate. As with the Barbaresco “Normale”, the juice is fermented in stainless steel and then racked into large oak “botti” for about two years of aging before being bottled. Vines are approximately 35 years of age (as of 2011). More full-bodied and dense than the “Normale”, the “Loreto” also has additional aging capacity.

ROBERT PARKER 94 POINTS - "Smack from the start, the 2010 Barbaresco shows full-on Gajissimo personality with irresistible opulence and intensity, magically contrasted against remarkable smoothness and finesse. Everyone wants to know his secret. The wine delivers seductively rich concentration and integrated oak that is offset by a delicate portfolio of chiseled mineral, dried berry fruit, Spanish cedar, crushed herb, anisette and blue flower.

Item: #302906

The Rabajà vineyard is with out a doubt the most historically significant vineyard with the most prestige in all of Barbaresco. The vineyard faces west towards the Rio Tanaro. This Read More...
is literally the Minuto’s backyard.

Cascina Luisin harvests just one hectare of the clay rich Rabajà. Yielding just around 350 cases per vintage. The wine spends 20 days in cement during primary fermentation then is transferred to large format barrels ranging in size between 20-50 hl. This wine is known for its great elegance and austerity of classic Nebbiolo displaying delicate fruit and age worthy tannins.

1913 marked the inaugural vintage for Luigi Minuto thus forming Cascina Luisin. This set up the Minuto family to become one of the oldest wine making families in Barbaresco. Not only are they one of the oldest, but they were the first to bottle and sell wine on a commercial level in the early 1930s. It is important to remember that unlike other regions in Italy, Piedmont has a very short history with quality wine making. Post WWII gave rise to the quality we have come to expect from the Barbaresco and Barolo. The names Minuto and Gaja are the first brought up when discussing the historical producers who paved the way.

Today Luigi’s great grandson, Luigi, who is now in his 70’s continues on the family winemaking tradition with his son Roberto. Roberto is 7th generation to make wine, the 4th to live under the same roof to which the winery is attached by a small patio that looks out over the Rabajà vineyard. The family philosophy is meticulous vineyard care and they hold great respect for upholding traditional winemaking practices in the winery.

The wines of Cascina Luisin are well known for their accessibility in their youth with great core fruit that holds up well and evolves with age.

Sori Paolin is made exactly the same as Rabajà. Primary fermentation takes place over the course of about 20 days, then the wine is laid to rest in oak for two years.

This is a highly Recommended Barbaresco at an Incredible Price.

Italian wines have been on a roll over the past several years. In particular, the wines of Piemonte (Piedmont) have shown tremendous gains in popularity with a string of outstanding vintages showcasing the quality the wines are capable of attaining. The Nebbiolo grape is without a doubt the region's star with the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco often referred to as the King and Queen of Italian wines. There is a certain nobility to these wines, which are quite different than any other wines in the world. They have the light-colored appearance, aromatic intensity and complexity of flavors common to pinot noir, but have more structure and are quite capable of aging. The wines of Barbaresco set themselves apart as they are generally more approachable at an early age as compared to those from Barolo.

The Pasquero family owns the Paitin estate, which dates to 1796. Secondo Pasquero works closely with his sons, Giovanni and Silvano to craft their beautiful wines. Their grapes for the Serra bottling are sourced from Serraboella vineyard nestled in the rolling hills of Neive. The vines have attained a maturity and the youngest vines are at least 30 years old. The Paitin Estate has been recognized as a producer of high quality wines, which offer incredible value. The Serra Barbaresco is a wine with excellent flavor, complexity and balance and was given a "Highly Recommended" designation by Wine Spectator Magazine!

meld together in a pliant, expressive Barbaresco that will drink well early. Sweet floral notes, anise and rose petal are laced throughout the finish. Ripe, silky tannins provide the backdrop for a gracious, understated Barbaresco.

Better in 2017. (7/ 2014)

ANTONIO GALLONI 90 POINTS- The 2009 Barbaresco Riserva Pajè is open, round and inviting. In this vintage, the Pajè is quite floral and open, with fewer of the darker, mentholated, spiced notes that I associate with this site. I expect the 2009 to drink well pretty much right out of the gate. With time in the glass, more Pajè character emerges, but overall, this is a relatively straightforward offering with fine balance but less site-specific character than normal. (10/ 2013)

the 2009 Pora is also quite beautiful in this vintage. Sweet floral and mint notes wrap around the palate in this impeccable, beautifully balanced, mid-weight Barbaresco from the Produttori. The 2009 impresses for its pliancy and generosity. Today, the tannins are a bit four-squared, but there is enough depth in the fruit to make me think the wine will come together a little more fully with more time in bottle. Drinking window: 2015 - 2027

berry and fennel seed. Very pretty length. Drinkable now but better in 2015."

STEPHEN TANZER 91 POINTS - "(as the Produttori has declassified its crus in 2010, there will be 28,000 cases of this blend): Tangy cherry and raspberry aromas are lifted by flowers and mint on the cool, inviting nose. Silky-sweet and floral, with lovely inner-mouth juiciness to its red berry flavors. Owing to the wine's moderate body and flesh, the tannins show a slightly dryness but the long, juicy finish offers enticing floral perfume. A lovely, sharply delineated Barbaresco at a very reasonable price. "

Simply put, this is excellent wine. The nose is a blend of beauty and strength, the veritable iron fist in the velvet glove, as it opens with Pavlovian scents of dried cherry and strawberry Read More...
fruits melded with a layer of gorgeous spice (white pepper and sweet brown baking spices). The side notes, almost the rhythm section with fruit and spice on the leads, consist of saddle leather, tar and a counterpoint of night-blooming garden herbs and dark florals. In the mouth, the tart tannins and sweet fruit, a compote of wild strawberries and mulberries, are in perfect harmony. The finish is long and sumptuous, leaving a hint of sea air and dark plums and berries, as the tannins slowly recede. This is big, balanced, beautiful wine that will pair wonderfully with braised beef, pastas with sausage, mushroom risotto or osso buco.

Fausoni often shows firmer, livelier tannins, but the warm 2011 vintage has softened the contours and yielded an inviting, resonant Barbaresco to drink now and over the next handful of years. Sweet floral notes from these soils rich in sand add the final nuances of complexity. What a gorgeous wine this is."
