Tasting Barbaresco by Bike

Barbaresco is located northeast of Alba, and emerges hill-by-hill through seemingly endless vineyards rooted in sandy soil. Like many wines in Piemonte, the famed Barbaresco is made from the Nebbiolo grape, but generally has softer tannins and a more fruity flavor than Barolo. In fact, under DOCG rules, Barbaresco is allowed to age one year less than Barolo, making these lighter wines slightly more approachable than other variations of the grape. The three villages of Barbaresco, Neive, and Treiso make up the production region, which boasts over 130 wineries today.
