Paitin Barbaresco Serraboella 2018
WA94: This wine draws its fruit from across the Serraboella vineyard in Neive with vines of various ages. The 2018 Barbaresco Serraboella has a broad reach, thanks to its balanced aromas of wild berry, dried cherry, crushed roses and violets. The wine spreads cleanly over the palate, thanks to the extra volume offered by its earthy and delicately mineral flavors. Like other releases from Paitin, the standout feature here is the silky nature of the mouthfeel.
JS93: Very deep nose with wild-strawberry notes, colored by hints of cinnamon, nuts, dried flowers and a tinge of quite sweet balsamic. Medium-bodied with the same intensity and firm control. The fruit flavors are starting to latch onto the firm tannins, but this is just the beginning of what will be a long process. Try from 2024." "Founded in 1796, Paitin is one of the oldest wineries in Barbaresco. They are known for their old vine parcel of Sori Paitin within the Serraboella cru – one of the more structured crus in Barbaresco.
