Although dense and taut, this red evokes cherry and currant underneath the tobacco, iron and eucalyptus flavors. Intense and focused, showing good balance and length.

Description
Located in the North Eastern region of Piedmont, the Basarin is one of the most famous cultivation areas of Nebbiolo grapes. The grapes are pressed and fermented on the skins at 28 Celsius in stainless steel tanks for about 10 days. The wine is then separated from skins and seeds then after a year in stainless steel tanks the wine is matured for a year in medium oak casks and then in bottle for 6 months prior to release.

Estate
The small craft winery run by Marco and Adriano Vittorio has won considerable fame among enthusiasts of Barbaresco and the typical wines of Piedmont. The family winegrowing tradition dates back to the start of the 1900s and the estate is located in the heart of the Langhe region, renowned for the production of great reds based on Nebbiolo among the most prestigious varieties in the Italian tradition. The vineyards are not far from Alba, famous for its white truffles, in San Rocco Seno dElvio. The Basarin vineyard, on the other hand, is in the municipality of Neive, one of the most important in the appellation. This Cru is ideally positioned, on a steep south-east facing slope with grey tufa stone marl soil. Adriano wines resemble the people who make them. They are frank, genuine and simple but incredibly profound and bound to tradition. They contain the quintessence of a magnificent terroir, full of charm and immense potential.

History
The estate is located in the heart of the Langhe region of Piedmont in the San Rocco Seno dElvio township. Marco and Vittorio Adriano cultivate vines and vinify exclusively with their own grapes to make wines that wholly reflect the terroir. The Adriano family began winemaking at the turn of the last century when Giuseppe, a tenant farmer began to cultivate vines. His son Aldo joined him in the enterprise and together they bought and planted a small estate.
In turn, the grandchildren Marco and Vittorio, cultivated the love for their land and its fruits, making the company grow: It is the 1994 harvest when they decide to wine their grapes by bottling the first bottles with the label Adriano. Nowadays, the estate encompasses 50 hectares, of which 10 hectares are devoted to hazelnuts, 10 are forested or lie fallow and 30 hectares are given over to Nebbiolo and Barbaresco, along with Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa, Sauvignon Blanc and white Moscato vines.

Tasting notes
Enticing scents of underbrush, tilled earth, wild rose and woodland berry align with balsamic notes of cool menthol. The linear, elegant palate offers red cherry, raspberry, white pepper and tobacco alongside taut, refined tannins. It's all about focus and finesse. It goes well with red meat dishes, game and mature cheeses.
