Description

Barbaresco DOCG is usually referred to as the Queen of Piedmont's red wines, a more approachable and lighter version of an aged Nebbiolo, in comparison with the strong Barolo. This expression by Pico Maccario is made entirely with handpicked Nebbiolo grapes, grown at about 250mt above sea level. The grapes spent about 15 days macerating. The wine is then aged for 9-10 months in Slavonian oak casks, with another year in the bottle for refinement.

This shorter time ageing in oak means the wine takes on less of that oak character and holds closer to its original Nebbiolo personality. One that while tannic, can be light in colour, and lean towards a medium body. On the nose, this wine is more floral with undertones of red fruits, and that signature vanilla and spices note that an aged Nebbiolo tends to give off. Upon the first sip, you'll see what an elegant wine this can be, warm and balanced with light tannins and good structure. A persistent finish in both flavour and warmth.

This wine can be enjoyed nicely with a full meal, but it even does well with a light aperitivo of cured meats and cheese of Piedmont like the pork filet, or the lovely Montebore cheese.

Each of Pico Maccario's wines come in a tin case in the form of a coloured pencil, these are a symbol of their vineyards, which they have decorated with colourful pencil shaped poles to bring life to their vineyard. Their own personal marking to express their perspective of the Langhe hills.
