94 Point Score VINOUS (Antonio Galloni)
The 2011 Barbaresco Sorì Paitin is constantly changing in the glass. At times light on its feet, while in other moments much more powerful, the 2011 is a wine of contrasts. This is another ample, intensely structured Barbaresco from Paitin full of personality and the breadth that is typical of this part of Neive, where the wines are often quite broad. Sweet red cherries, tobacco, incense and earthiness are some of the many aromas and flavors add complexity over time. The 2011 spent 24 months in new casks. Far from an easygoing 2011, the Sorì Paitin is going to need time in bottle, the only question is how much.

A graphite aroma leads off, with rose, cherry and spice flavors gracing the edges. Elegant, supple and firm, this dovetails to a focused, linear finish, emphasizing mineral and tobacco notes. 500 cases made.
