2008 Punset Barbaresco 750ml

The Punset Winery is located the heart of the Piemonte district of Italy, on a hilltop overlooking the historic village of Neive. The Winery’s name comes from the Piedmont’s dialect and history, which says that the Counts of Neive gave this nickname to the roundish peak they admired through the mists from their castle, where the winery and vineyards are located today.



The property, has been owned by the Marcarino family for many years: it was about year 1964 that the Punset winery decided to sell its wines in shops and restaurants. Up to this period the wines were made only for family use. Today the winery is run by Marina Marcarino, who is one of a few female wine makers which first started this activity in Piedmont; she is making the winery one of the top producers of the area.

WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 93

WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: An aromatic and flavorful red, with rose, cherry, licorice, tobacco and briar notes. Both supple and vibrant, this has an elegance that belies the extremely dense tannins. Shows excellent length, with an aftertaste of fruit, underbrush and mineral. Best from 2015 through 2030.
