5.00 out of 5
(1 customer review)


Barbaresco Riserva DOCG “San Cristoforo” by Elio Filippino winery in Piedmont expresses a fruity bouquet with reminiscences of violet and raspberries. Spicy hints of cinnamon, tobacco and cocoa. Full, enchanting and elegant taste, intense with a good body. Ideal serving temperature is 18°-20°C. Also very good at 16°-17°C. Do not expose to abrupt changes of temperature. Its fragrance and scents are highlighted if put into a crystal decanter and then poured into crystal stemware with an ample bowl.

Swirl the wine around the glass to finally taste and appreciate it. This Italian red is for moments to remember and sophisticated tables. It is a perfect match for savory stuffed pasta, stewed and braised meats, game and pungent, fully ripe cheeses. Excellent with delicate fruits like strawberries.

Vinification: The best grapes are delicately pressed and the stalks are removed. The must ferments in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 26°-28°C for 30 days. After racking, the new wine is put into 15 hl Slavonian oak casks for about 36 months. Next, it is bottled and left to age for at least 7 years, developing its distinctive character and elegant bouquet.

Limited number of bottles produced only in very special years.

    An intense bouquet of dried blackberries and raspberries. On the finish spicy notes of chocolate, leather and tobacco leaves. Rich in tannins, delicate and elegant. Tasteful and deep. Long aftertaste. Meditation wine, for wine lovers or for special occasions.
