Paitin Barbaresco Faset 2019
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco|
"Ripe strawberry and cherry aromas with some fresh flowers on the nose. Medium to full body, with firm and integrated tannins, and a juicy and creamy finish at the end. Give it time to open. Try after 2024." James Suckling 94 points Drink 2024-35
Grilled herb, blue flower, sandalwood and wild berry aromas emerge from the glass. Tightly wound and structured, the linear palate offers cranberry, licorice and cinnamon alongside a backbone of close-grained tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced.
The 2019 Barbaresco Faset is a new wine in this range from the blocks above Asili. All the character of this sector of Barbaresco comes through loud and clear. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit, mint, chalk and white pepper are some of the many notes that grace this exquisite, beautifully layered Barbaresco from Paitin. Give the tannins a few years to soften.
Here's a new submission from Paitin. The 2019 Barbaresco Faset (with only 3,792 bottles produced) could be described as slightly softer and rounder compared to some of the other wines in this celebrated portfolio. The fruit is a bit riper too, with red cherry and wild strawberry. This expression is quite immediate and forthcoming, with more sweet fruits followed by earth and spice.
A fresh, supple red, evoking cherry, strawberry, floral, iron and grassy notes. Firm and well-balanced, with rose hip tea flavors midpalate and fine length. Best from 2025 through 2040. 316 cases made, 63 cases imported.
