AGEING: Two and a half years in Slavonian oak casks, followed by refining in the bottle ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14% by vol. SERVING: Barbaresco must be served uncorked at least two or three hours before, at a 18° – 20° degree of temperature. PAIRINGS: It demands the chance to meditate to allow its great qualities and compound aromas to be discovered slowly. Its place of honour is assured with braised beef, hare, chamois, truffle-flavoured pheasant, turkey and very mature cheeses. STORAGE: A great vintage like the 2013 has no time limits. It should be stored in a cool, dark place at a constant temperature, lying down so that there is no air between the cork and the wine, and the cork remains soft and unaffected by any bacteria forming in the air in the bottle."
