Paitin

Piedmont, Italy | website

Paitin dates back to 1796 when Benedetto Elia purchased the farmstead with an outlying wine cellar and vineyards from Luigi Pellissero. Benedetto’s son Giuseppe extended later vineyards and acquired the underground cellar, which dated back to XV century. The first bottle of Barbaresco del Sori Paitin was produced in 1898 and Sori Paitin has been exporting wine ever since.Today Secondo Pasquero works in the cellar together with his sons Giovanni and Silvano, who also opened a farmhouse in 1997. From their 17 hectares of vines, Paitin produces some breathtaking traditional Barbaresco, Barbera, Dolcetto and Arneis. The Barbaresci are characterized by their depth of fruit and amazing ageing potential. All Paitin wines, from their Dolcetto to their Riserva Barbaresco are spectacularly well crafted and offer some of the greatest value in the Langhe.

2011 Sori Paitin Barbaresco

Currently in Vintages

The 2011 Barbaresco Sorì Paitin is constantly changing in the glass. At times light on its feet, while in other moments much more powerful, the 2011 is a wine of contrasts. This is another ample, intensely structured Barbaresco from Paitin full of personality and the breadth that is typical of this part of Neive, where the wines are often quite broad. Sweet red cherries, tobacco, incense and earthiness are some of the many aromas and flavors add complexity over time. The 2011 spent 24 months in new casks. Far from an easygoing 2011, the Sorì Paitin is going to need time in bottle, the only question is how much.
