Generous and ripe, the 2015 Barbaresco Serragrilli has enjoyed the benefit of a late harvest after a warm and dry month of September. The earlier part of the summer was very cool however. Many vintners took the risk in 2014 and waited for fruit to continue its ripening longer than usual. Nebbiolo tends to show less colour intensity and integrity in warm vintages, but 2014 displays beautifully dark saturation instead. The tannins are ample and round and the wine shows dark fruit aromas of black cherry and crème de cassis. The tail end of the wine's flavour profile shows a touch of mineral saltiness. This goes a long way to reset and refresh the palate.

Barbaresco is a wine region located in the Piedmont region of Italy. The region is known for producing high-quality red wines made from the Nebbiolo grape variety. Barbaresco is one of the three major wine regions in Piedmont, along with Barolo and Asti.

The history of Barbaresco dates back to the 19th century when the first Nebbiolo vines were planted in the region. The wine gained popularity in the 20th century when it was recognized as a DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) in 1966. In 1980, Barbaresco was granted DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) status, which is the highest level of Italian wine classification.

Barbaresco wines are known for their elegance, complexity, and aging potential. The wines are typically aged for a minimum of two years, with at least one year in oak barrels. Barbaresco wines are characterized by their aromas of red fruit, flowers, and spices, as well as their firm tannins and high acidity.

There are several notable producers in the Barbaresco region, including Gaja, Produttori del Barbaresco, and Bruno Giacosa. Gaja is one of the most famous producers in the region, known for their modern style of winemaking and use of international grape varieties. Produttori del Barbaresco is a cooperative of small growers that produces traditional-style Barbaresco wines. Bruno Giacosa is known for his classic-style Barbaresco wines, which are aged for a minimum of three years before release.

Barbaresco is a small region, with only around 700 hectares of vineyards. The region is divided into four communes: Barbaresco, Neive, Treiso, and San Rocco Seno d'Elvio. The Barbaresco commune is the most famous and produces the most highly-regarded wines.

In addition to Barbaresco wines, the region also produces a small amount of white wine made from the Arneis grape variety. The wine is known for its floral aromas and crisp acidity.

Overall, Barbaresco is a region that produces some of the finest wines in Italy. The wines are highly sought after by collectors and wine enthusiasts around the world. With its rich history and tradition of winemaking, Barbaresco is a region that is sure to continue producing exceptional wines for years to come.
