Barbaresco Vie Erte 2009, DOCG Barbaresco, Italy
Selected for Waddesdon’s guest wine selection due to its quality and artisanal approach to wine making. This Barbaresco possesses a seductive bouquet with the classic structured definition of Nebbiolo. Despite being open for business this vintage will certainly evolve well over the next decade. Nebbiolo grapes are collected from Bricco di Neive, a small cluster of vineyards in the north west of Italy. After careful vinification the wines are aged in old Slovenian oak for no less than twenty six months.

The palate is well defined with fine tannins and vibrant acidity. The nose reveals the majestic aromatic profile of Nebbiolo; ripe red berries, tar, tea leaves, crushed flowers, tobacco and earthy spice. This wine is perfectly drinkable now, but has the potential to improve over the next decade. Barbaresco requires food due to the defined tannic structure. Paired with game, cured meats or hard cheese this wine is an absolute pleasure to drink.
