Barbaresco DOCG Pajorè


A Barbaresco Geographical Mention, it is one of the appellation’s most renowned crus. It enjoys a well-established reputation thanks in part to the cult wines of Giovanni Moresco (now almost unobtainable), who first vinified it in purity in 1967. The rows have a very steep, almost terraced layout that enhances the excellent south, southwest exposure. Soils, elevations and exposure give Barbaresco of absolute class, classic and elegant structure, well delineated and deeply balanced.


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.
