Bold: Red Berries, Kirsch, Red Rose, Mineral
Roberto Luisin makes the wines for his father, Luigi, and he is the 7th generation in this family operation. The wines are made in the traditional style; the vines are 30 years old and the wine is made in cement tanks and large Slavonian barrels.
This Barbaresco has a firm structure with pretty fruit character and a definitive mineral backbone. It is elegant in it's flavor profile and yet the cool vineyard gives it a power and boldness that makes it more masculine than some nebbiolo made nearby. A special wine that is just now becoming ready to drink and will age well for years to come.
