Serraboella is the most famous cru in the Southern Neive. A long hill exposed to West that gently bends towards South getting steeper. On this very side: the steepest and the warmest, our Barbaresco has a unique expression. Power, volume are laced by an elegant texture. In our Barbaresco two vineyards contributes to this wine. The most mineral and rough character the one that shares a border with the Bricco, named vineyard 'd Tourun. He meets the fine and elegant one from the more sheltered position, named Schiena d'Ernestin.

The 2016 Barbaresco Serraboella delivers the same grace and beautiful fragility that you get in the other wines in Paitin's portfolio of new releases. This production of 9,800 bottles shows a slow and steady progression of wild berry, forest floor, blue flower, dried lilac, blood orange and delicate licorice or tar. There's a lot going on in terms of the bouquet, and all that energy is nicely balanced by the wine's lithe body and its natural tannic backbone.

A rich version, whose velvety texture carries cherry, plum, menthol and tobacco flavors. Dense and ripe, ending in a cascade of fruit and broad, dusty tannins. Fine balance. Best from 2023 through 2043. 1,300 cases made.

The 2016 Barbaresco Serraboella is bright, perfumed and very nicely lifted, with an attractive interplay of floral aromatics and textural depth. Mint, pine, kirsch, dried flowers and sweet tobacco are some of the nuances that emerge. The 2016 is tightly wound and classically austere in style, so it needs time in bottle to unwind, but it has undoubtedly fine potential.

Underbrush, menthol and cracked dill aromas lead the nose. The vigorous palate offers crunchy sour cherry, orange zest and licorice set against assertive, close-grained tannins and racy acidity.
