Barbaresco is on a stunning run of form thanks to a series of astonishingly good vintages. 2010 and 2011 were both excellent and the producer Sori Paitin performed superbly in each. Their Barbaresco Vecchie Vigne scored a huge 95+ points in both years and, at great value for money, are not to be missed.
The elegant, graceful Nebbiolos of Barbaresco should now be on every collector’s watchlist, with each of these efforts from Paitin is very hard to ignore - particularly in the context of the accompanying notes:
2011: “a wine of extraordinary purity… simply magnificent” 95+pts
2010: “an intense, structured Barbaresco loaded with class, energy and pure power” 95+pts
These are beautiful wines that are packed with potential to improve and offer exceptional value for money given the quality. The only difficult question is which vintage to go for? It’s hard to choose, making a case of each a very tempting option.

The 2010 Barbaresco Sorì Paitin Vigne Vecchie hits the palate with fabulous depth and intensity. Savory herbs, smoke, tobacco, incense, menthol and licorice race out of the glass in an intense, structured Barbaresco loaded with class, energy and pure power. There is plenty to look forward to, once the tannins soften a bit. The 2010 has closed down pretty dramatically since the last time I tasted it, about a year ago. Readers will have to be patient. The 2010 spent a total of 30 months in cask. (Oct 2014), www.vinous.com, Drink 2018-2035
