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.
