Pertinace


ORIGIN: Italy

TYPE/VARIETAL: Nebbiolo

PRODUCT: Pertinace Barbaresco D.O.C.G.

The PERTINACE® winery was founded in the Pertinace hamlet on the outskirts of the village of Treiso by Mario Barbero, its first President, and twelve grower friends between late 1972 and early 1973.  With great enthusiasm, they decided to join their forces, properties and experience together in the "Cantina Vignaioli Elvio Pertinace" cooperative
to fully exploit the potential of their vineyards in producing wines of the highest quality.

Pertince Barbaresco D.O.C.G. is the signature Barbaresco of the hill of Treiso; a particular favorite because it epitomizes the work and soul of the men and women who contribute to the co-operative.  A blend of Nebbiolo grapes grown on each of the vineyards belonging to its members, it becomes the Barbaresco "par excellence," capable of conjuring up intense emotions.

Magnificent intense garnet red color, with deep ruby highlights.  Very persistent, complex bouquet reminiscent of ripe fruit, withered flowers, sweet spices and vanilla.  Warm, dry flavor, with sweet tannins rounding off its rich structure and harmonious complexity.
