Paitin traces it's history to 1796 when Benedetto Elia purchased the farmstead with outlying wine cellar and vineyards from Luigi Pellissero . His son Giuseppe later extended the vineyards and acquired the underground cellar, which dates to the 15th century.
Barbaresco del Sori Paitin was first produced in 1893, and was first exported in 1898. Secondo Pasquero-Elia took over management in 1965, building a new wine cellar, gradually replanting vineyards, and acquiring new vines.
Paitin Langhe 2008
Fermentation on the skins in steel rotary fermentors for 8-9 days with temperature control, aging in French barriques for 12 months. Concentrated, complex, ripe red fruit, mint, vanilla, and sweet oak on the nose. On the palate: soft, velvety, fresh, sweet tannins, and very long.
The Langhe Paitin (Nebbiolo, Barbera) is a fresh, vibrant wine imbued with violets, graphite, menthol, plums, wild cherries and minerals, all of which come together beautifully.
"The 2008 Langhe Paitin impresses for its minerality and energy. Dark fruit, sweet spices, licorice and leather are some of the notes that flow from this Nebbiolo/Barbera blend. Hints of tar and smoke develop in the glass, adding an element of darkness. This is an impressive showing, but the wine could use at least another year in bottle to shed some of its youthful vigor. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.
