Socré Barbaresco DOCG 2016
- Textured, savoury
This is a new vintage of an absolutely stunning wine that we’ve been lucky to work with for three years now. This is Barbaresco, Barolo’s younger sibling that tends to be slightly more delicate, approachable and seductive. Bring out the Barolo when you want to impress your boss. Bring out the Barbaresco when you want to impress a wine lover. This wine offers a heady bouquet of tangy forest berries and cherries, with violets, rose petals, earth, mocha and licorice root. There’s tannin on the palate, but not so much that you can’t open it young. Make sure to decant to get the most out of this layered and structured wine.
“Barbaresco. Tasted blind. Mid to deep ruby. Fragrant and deep nose that conveys a sense of richness but it is not entirely open yet. Plush, juicy palate with a rich layer of chewy tannins. Built toage, but already quite gorgeous.”
Full price $90.00 from the producer.

If you’ve never plugged Piedmont into Google images then now’s the time. A northern Italian region that spoons both France and Switzerland, it’s one of the more picturesque wine regions in the world and better yet, the vinos do the dramatic backdrop justice. Piedmont wines benefit from the warmth of the Mediterranean and the chill of the Alps, and the combination of these climates means the valleys will often be shrouded in fog. Behind the fog you’ll find Piedmont’s two superstar wines: Barolo and Barbaresco. Known as the King of Wines in Italy, Barolo in particular is lauded over worldwide but really, there’s more to Piedmont than these two. Aside from juicy, tannic nebbiolo, keep an eye out for barbera, the go-to vino for many Italians.
