Vineyard Notes: Vines are sourced from the Rio Sordo Valley, on the south ridge that since 2006 takes the name of Tre Stelle MGA. Vines were planted between 1997 to 2005.

Winemaking Notes: The skins remain in contact with the must during fermentation for 28-30 days. Fermentation occurs naturally with native yeast. The skins are submersed during fermentation via pump overs. Malolactic fermentation completes in the cellar at temperature of 20°C (68°F). The wine ages in large traditional Slavonian and Swiss oak casks for 20 months and matures in the bottle for at least 8 months. No filtration or clarification is done before bottling.

Tasting Notes: Beautiful brilliant and transparent garnet red. Elegant notes of rose, violet, leather, red fruits, plus a fresh vein of minerality. Ethereal. Great finesse and silkiness in the tannins structure, classy and vertical. Well balanced with long persistence. Tre Stelle is Nebbiolo in all its beauty.

    The 2020 Barbaresco Tre Stelle is a racy, sensual wine. Soft contours wrap around a core of sweet dried cherry, mint, cinnamon, cedar, new leather and rose petal. Already quite open, the 2020 will drink well with minimal cellaring. Sweet floral top notes lift the finish. This is nicely done.

    The 2020 Barbaresco Tre Stelle is a delight to drink. The character of this vintage is more accessible for sure, and the fruit is very bright and supple. But there's no harm in drinking this warm-vintage release of 7,500 bottles on the early side while all its primary aromas are so intact and enticing. The tannins are soft, and the wine shows medium richness to close.
