Barbaresco DOCG

North east of Barolo is Barbaresco DOCG, also making wines from Nebbiolo grapes that are grown in different soils and topography with different ageing requirements. Barbaresco wines must be aged a minimum of two years before release, with a minimum of one year in wood.  To be called a Barbaresco Riserva, the wine must be aged for two years more.

It is thought that these two wine styles each offer a unique expression of the Nebbiolo grape. There is a local saying that refers to Barolo as the “Wine of Kings” for its power and structure, while Barbaresco is known as the “Wine of Queens” for its refined elegance.
