Barbaresco DOCG Pajoré

This is the new Barbaresco grown on our
vineyards, building on the estate’s
collection in joining Barbaresco Argè,
Barbaresco Rizzi-Fratin and Barbaresco
Riserva Nervo Vigna Giaia.
It is the signature expression of a renowned
cru in Treiso, one of the 4 villages in
the DOCG appellation’s growing area. Its
true value is also sentimental however, as
it marks exactly 40 years since the release
of the Piazzo Winery’s first label of
Barbaresco, produced from the 1979
vintage.
Its name is taken from the farmhouse
standing at the centre of the vineyard,
which itself probably comes from the
family name of its erstwhile owner,
Peirolero, in the local dialect: Pajorè.
The lime and clay-rich soil on this
vineyard is low in nutrients, so the yield
may be limited, but the fruit is packed
with scents and aromas. And these are
what give Barbaresco Pajorè such an
elegant style.
