Casali del Barone Barbaresco DOCG

Casali del Barone is a range of wines which encapsulates the winemaking tradition and history of the Piedmont region. Produced by Schenk Italian wineries, Casali del Barone Barbaresco DOCG is a great example of this iconic Italian wine. Made from the Nebbiolo grape renowned for its great tanins, fruitiness and perfumed aroma, Barbaresco is often described a junior Barolo.

This wine is a real crowd pleaser. Casali del Barone Barbaresco recently won a Gold medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2018.

The harvest of the grapes, 100% Nebbiolo in purity, is followed by destemming, pressing and fermentation, which takes place at controlled temperature between 25° and 30°C for about 3 weeks. The wine is aged for 26 months, including 9 months in large wooden barrels.
