This wine hails from the cru Bassarin in Barbaresco. Aged tradiotionally in large wood for around 2 years--this wine offers a glipmse into a Nebbiolo that can be enjoyed relatively young. Soft tannis, red berry fruit, and a mentholated finish. We love this wine throughout the meal and it sings alongside a slice of creamy taleggio and a hunk of warm, crusty bread.
Since 1670, the Negro family has been cultivating vineyards in the hills of the Roero and realizing the viticultural potential of this relatively undiscovered subregion of Piedmont. In that same year, two of the estate’s most cherished vineyards—Perdaudin and Prachiosso—were first planted. Boasting some of the most desirable vineyard sites in the Roero, Negro is an indisputable legend of the area. In fact,
The current winemaker, Angelo Negro, produces wines exclusively from the native grapes of the region, offering a remarkable range of Arneis and Nebbiolo, among other
varietals. The family’s sandy, fossil-laden vineyards in the village of Monteu Roero coupled with their meticulous work in the vineyard and the cellar give rise to precise, soulful wines. Today, the estate observes organic practices while managing a staggering 70 hectares under vine.
