BARBARESCO "PAJORE"

“The charm and the pleasure of Barbaresco” 

 

The Barbaresco Pajorè is born from the grapes pickup inside the Crü Pajoré. Bordering the vines of Roncaglie and Montaribaldi, in the municipality of Barbaresco, Pajorè is incontestably one of most famous vineyards in the Langhe. The vineyard, located in the heart of Crü Pajorè, enjoys a near-perfect elevation from 300 metres to the roughly 230 metres of the last Nebbiolo worthy rows. The finest plot, however, have a superb south or south-west-facing and very lean marly soil."
