A red wine of outstanding prestige and excellent quality, Barbaresco was one of the first Italian wines to be given the Denominazione di Origine Controllata (Controlled Designation of Origin).

Made exclusively on the hills of Barbaresco, San Rocco Seno d’Elvio, Neive and Treiso, the vineyards are situated on sunny slopes at altitudes below 550 metres above sea level, allowing early sugar maturation.

The 24-month ageing process, which includes at least 12 months in oak, along with finely developed technical expertise, makes Barbaresco D.O.C.G. Le Clivie a wine that is structured and severe, while being fine and elegant, characterised by an unmistakable transparency and clarity.

COLOUR Garnet red with orange highlights

BOUQUET Ethereal, pleasant and intense, with scents of dark-coloured berries and floral notes of violet

PAIRING Ideal with characteristic Piedmontese dishes, such as “battuta al coltello di fassona” (finely chopped beef served raw) or “vitello tonnato” (slow-cooked veal, sliced and served cold with a creamy tuna sauce).
