  4. Barbaresco DOCG Bernardot

This 100% Nebbiolo wine is made entirely from grapes grown in the Bernardot cru.  The vineyard is located on a ridge just south of Treiso with mostly southern exposures.  The wine is aged in a combination of French oak barriques and barrels for two years before bottling.

Tasting Notes

This is an opulent, rich wine, packed with soft and silky tannins.  On this nose, it is concentrated with classic aromas of flowers and red berry fruits underscored by notes of truffles and Barbaresco's characteristic smokiness. 

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with grilled game, Espagnole sauces, foie gras rumaki, and pan-seared steaks.
