- Paitin Barbera d'Alba Serra 2013 Product #30606 (In Stock)
In the warm 2013 vintage, Paitin's Serra Barbera retains lovely freshness to go with the dark, seductive, fruit.
"The 2013 Barbera d'Alba Serra is soft, open and seductive, with silky tannins and lovely overall balance. Sweet floral notes meld into spices and bright red berries in a feminine wine that shows the more delicate side of Barbera. The 2013 spent a year in large, neutral casks." Vinous (Galloni) 88 points
- Paitin Barbaresco Serra 2012 Product #30172 (In Stock)
Paitin makes three different wines from their excellent Serraboella vineyard, with Serra coming from the “young” vines – although much of this stock is 15-20 years old. “Vibrancy” is the key word here, with fresh aromas of red berry, ginger, nutmeg, and smoke and a zippy cherry/raspberry palate with accents of spice and herb. Even since Galloni tasted this, it’s smoothed out and shows plenty of fruit and a silky texture. The most immediately delicious of the three Barbaresco (although sure to improve).
"Paitin's 2012 Barbaresco Serra bursts from the glass with exuberant red fruit, flowers, spices and crushed rocks. There is no shortage of intensity, although the Serra comes across as a bit rough around the edges, especially next to the 2011. It will be interesting to see what the last bit of aging brings. Drink 2016-2024" Vinous (Galloni) 89-91 points
"A bright, juicy, red exhibiting cherry, raspberry, licorice, spice and floral flavors. Becomes more tannic, lingering on the moderately long finish. Decant now or cellar for two to three years. Best from 2018-2013."Wine Spectator 92 points
