Barbaresco D.O.C.G. by Bersano: A Tapestry of Tradition and Elegance

In the lush vineyards of Barbaresco, nestled within the rolling hills of Piemonte, Italy, lies a treasure of the wine world: the Barbaresco D.O.C.G. by Bersano. Wine Affairs, a distinguished wine distributor based in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, is proud to present this exquisite wine, a symbol of the rich winemaking heritage of Bersano.

The Barbaresco D.O.C.G. is crafted from the Nebbiolo variety, a grape that is as much a part of Piemonte's identity as the rolling hills themselves. The production area spans various towns in Barbaresco, CN, where the calcareous clay soil contributes to the unique character of the wine. Harvested in the first half of October, each grape is a testament to the land's generous bounty.

Bersano's approach to vinification is a blend of tradition and innovation. The process involves maceration on the skins in temperature-controlled automatic steel fermenters. This is followed by repeated pumping-overs and aeration until the complete conversion of sugars to alcohol. Racking and aging in contact with fine lees are essential steps to facilitate malolactic fermentation, adding complexity and smoothness to the wine.

The aging process of Barbaresco D.O.C.G. is a journey through time, with a minimum of 18 months in large oak barrels and further maturation in the bottle. This careful aging imparts depth and elegance, ensuring that each bottle reaches its full potential.

At 14% alcohol by volume, this Barbaresco D.O.C.G. is a robust yet refined wine. It presents an intense garnet red color, inviting the connoisseur to a sensory experience like no other. The nose is distinguished by notes of maraschino cherry, evolving into a crescendo of currants, cocoa, and violet, with a final touch of tar. This warm, ethereal, and intense bouquet is complemented by a rich and persistent flavor. Soft tannins meld with hints of leather, licorice, and pepper, harmonized with notes of dried violet and ripe plum.

The Barbaresco D.O.C.G. by Bersano is an ideal pairing for wild game, red meat, elaborate main courses, and flavorful cheeses. It is best served at a temperature of 16/18° C, allowing the wine's complexity to unfold beautifully. With a longevity of more than 10 years, this wine is not only a drink for today but an investment for the future.
