MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS Call 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) • Visit us at • Complimentary delivery on all orders over $150 in NY and CT 69 ITALY: BARBARESCO barbaresco's secreT Weapon n ow with the expertise of ex-Giacosa winemaker, Dante Scaglione behind the scenes at Paitin, this property is playing from strength to strength. What was once considered a modern Barbaresco producer, has now been labeled one of the most progressive properties in the region. The 2010 Sori Paitin Vecchie Vigne has been labeled an epic wine, and a great achievement for the vintage. Meanwhile, in 2011, Paitin has delivered another success and a great value with the Barbaresco Sori Paitin. There's so much to like about these offerings and the future for Barbaresco has never been brighter. ✦ Paitin Barbaresco Sori Paitin 2011 AG 94 » $49 "...a wine of contrasts...ample, intensely structured Barbaresco... full of personality..." (1557052) Paitin Barbaresco Sori Paitin vecchie vigne 2010 AG 95+ » $89 "...fabulous depth and intensity...loaded with class, energy and pure power." (1557040) iMparTing a neW legacy M uch has changed at Bruno Rocca over the last few years, especially now that his son Francesco Rocca has imparted a more traditional influence on the wines. What were once considered Barbaresco with a modern- lean, the current releases are now showing site transparency and a focus on Nebbiolo fruit. This has much to do with a reduction of new Barrique in the cellar. When you consider that Bruno Rocco's holdings are regarded as some of the best in the region, the whole picture begins to take shape. Bruno Rocca is a property to watch in Barbaresco, as the 2010 vintage is only just the beginning of a very bright future. ✦ Bruno Rocca Barbaresco Coparossa 2010 wA 96 » $84 "...This is a stunning effort. The wine is irresistibly silky and sensuous on the palate, imparting clean fruit flavors that last long on the finish. It delivers fabulous length with seemingly never-ending intensity and persistency." (1557048)
