Cascina Luisin 'Paolin', Barbaresco, Italy 2017
One of Barbaresco's oldest and iconic producer, being run by the Minuto family for eight generations, with vineyards in some of Barbaresco’s greatest sites—Asili and Rabajà among them. They're believers of low-impact farming, retaining grass and vegetation and using only copper and sulfur to treat the vineyards. Roberto Minuto, who runs the estate today, and his 85-year-old father put their wines up for sale when they decide they are ready, which ends up being significantly later than most producers in the region.
