These wines from Luca Pasquero Elia and his family are some of my favorites in this entire report. Yes, there are wines with higher scores, but the Paitin portfolio shows an unmistakable magic, across the board, with these new releases. They are accessible and most importantly, relatable.

96 / 100

Gary Walsh

It will be fine, floral and fragrant with appropriate bottle age, but as at now, it’s pretty well-packed and almost brooding. Red cherry, some dark, mint, almond, dried herbs and flowers. Medium-bodied, but intense and emphatically etched with sweet fleshy, almost ferrous, tannin, freshness, perfume and sugared almond, then comes a prodigious finish. Immense potential.

The 2016 Barbaresco Sorì Paitin is powerful, but also quite reticent today. Dark cherry, menthol, licorice, sage and dried flowers are all found in a searing, intense Sorì Paitin that needs to be at its best. Tannic and austere, the 2016 appears to be going through a closed phase, and yet it has a feeling of verticality and gravitas that is impossible to miss.
