Bersano 2012 "Badarina" Barolo

Bersano 2012 “Badarina” Barolo

Bersano has the largest acreage of any private winery in the Italian Piedmont. Founded in the 19th Century, Bersano originally produced wine solely in the Asti province. Over the years, they now have 230HA  of vineyards, including properties in both Barolo and Barbaresco.

The wines from Bersano come into the Chairman’s Selection program in the PA Wine & Spirits Stores on occasion, including another of their Barolo bottlings, which comes from their Nirvasco vineyard. This bottling does not come from one of their own vineyards, instead, it’s sourced from the famous Badarina vineyard in Barolo’s Serralunga province.

A beautifully structured Barolo, with a core of tannins pushing against perfumed aromas and elegant acidity. Cigar box and rich dark fruit on the palate give way to oak spices.
