Barbaresco DOCG Pajorè

Characteristics

This Barbaresco D.O.C.G. Pajorè, grows in the Nebbiolo vineyards situated in the towns of Treiso. This MGA justly enjoys a solid renown thanks to the cult wines of Giovanni Moresco (today almost impossible to find) who was the first to make a single-vineyard wine in 1967. Soil, altitude, and exposure are almost always excellent for Nebbiolo which in this MGA express an elegant and classic character.*After ageing in oak casks for two years it is presented to the consumer with the following organoleptic characteristics: Color; garnet red with orange tinges. Fragrance: ethereal, intense, fragrant with fruit and flowers, pleasantly spicy. Taste: dry, full, robust but smooth and velvety. An excellent wine to match with roasted meat, game and matured cheese.
