A recent visit to the Paitin estate in Neive was full of delicious wines and fascinating history. The Pasquero-Elia family has been working these vineyards since 1796, and bottling the wines as Barbaresco for more than a century, even before their village officially joined Barbaresco. Three generations of the family are at work today in the vineyards and cellar, working organically and crafting Nebbiolo wines with equal power and grace.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 93
"The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Vecchie Vigne possesses quite a bit of depth and yet retains the classic mid-weight style that is typical of the Paitin wines these days. Black cherry, licorice, spice, underbrush, sage and menthol build as this potent, ample Barbaresco shows off its considerable allure. The long, substantial finish adds to my optimism. At this point, the 2016 is pretty closed and the tannins are formidable, but that is not surprising given the style of the year. The 2016 is a step in the right direction for an estate that has had some ups and downs in the recent past." -Vinous

"The Paitin 2016 Barbaresco Serraboella Riserva Sorì Paitin Vecchie Vigne is a gorgeous wine. The bouquet is especially redolent of dried rose and potpourri, and the dark fruit offers highlights of baked cherry or peach. This amazing crescendo of new releases from Paitin goes one impressive step further, pushing the boundaries with this promising and cellar-worthy new release. There is a point of bitter almond on the close, but the mouthfeel is otherwise silky and very fine in texture. Exactly 5,281 bottles were released."" -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

WS 94
"A fresh, spicy style, whose cherry, tar, iron and tobacco flavors are framed with a light toasting of oak. It's all focused by the vibrant structure, with refined tannins lining the finish. Shy and austere, yet nicely balanced and long."
