The Barbaresco territory is separated from the Barolo area by the town of Alba. It is a tiny district that includes only the four villages of Barbaresco,
Neive, Treiso and San Rocco. It expands for approximately 700 hectares to the south of the Tanaro river, which means it enjoys a slightly more
maritime microclimate than the neighbouring Barolo area. Barbaresco is the “Queen,” alongside the “King” Barolo, of Piedmont’s red wine
production. Both are made exclusively from Nebbiolo grapes, but Barbaresco’s profile is softer and more approachable. The tannins round out quicker,
but long-aging is still necessary for a truly spectacular wine.
