Barbaresco Casetta 2004, DOCG Barbaresco, Italy
Selected for Waddesdon’s guest wine selection due to its quality and artisanal approach to wine making. This Barbaresco is currently showing wonderfully and will continue to impress for many years to come. Hand harvesting and optical sorting are deployed prior to vinification. This vintage was then aged for three years in barrel and bottle, prior to its release. As with classic Barbaresco, significant bottle ageing is required in order for the tannin to integrate. After nearly ten years in the bottle this wine is fully evolved and drinking beautifully.

Barbaresco; known as the Queen of Italian wine is made exclusively from the beguiling Nebbiolo grape. The nose offers violets, wild berries, tar and tea leaf with hint of walnut. The palate is evolved with a rich luxurious mouthfeel, fine grippy tannins and a long intense finish. Nebbiolo often needs many years in the bottle to show its full colours, and after almost ten years in the bottle this Barbaresco displays great complexity and elegance.
