The Basarin cru in Neive is one of the most beautiful in the appellation, located on a hill that rises high enough to enjoy the surrounding panorama of tightly planted vineyards. The tannins are especially polished in this vintage. Exactly 2,922 bottles were released.
This vintage, spends two years in large oak barrels, a lean appearance and a dark ruby hue. The wine is subtle and fine, prizing the delicate and ethereal nuances of the grape, with dried cherry, crushed flowers, campfire ash and iron ore. ground white pepper also appears.
Basarin is among the most fascinating hills of the Langhe, its grandeur makes it so attractive. Ever since famed vineyard of the village of Neve, exposition to South, from which it derives its name that means “kissed by the sun”.
Very steep, at the crossroads of the three villages of Neive Treiso and Barbaresc, it leads to spiced, fine and elegant wines. Became famous through the priest of Neive, that among many vineyards he selected the grapes from Basarin and Gallina to make his best Barbaresco.
In the years many other producers claimed this vineyard, from 2018 it has become part of Paitin's production. The alter-ego of Serraboella, this wine plays his strength through its slenderness full of character.
