REVIEWS

"A wonderful find from one of our favorite importers, this little gem is all quality at a great value.  Blue fruit and a bit floral on the nose, dry and austere on the palate, but with good weight in the middle and a warm violet finish.  Blueberry, blackberry and tart cherry, dark finish and classic style.  Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in Barbera, and especially for those who haven’t had the pleasure.  Drink now through 2020" - 92 Insider Points

Carlin De Paolo is a fourth-generation family-owned winery with exclusively estate-produced wines. The Name Carlin de Paolo comes from two of the winery’s great patriarchs: Carlin and Paolo, Grandfather and great-grandfather, respectively. Paolo was an indefatigable worker, bent from the hard work carried out in the vineyards for many years. But he was always joyful; with his fist clenched as a sign of determination he was always striding forward.

Carlin de Paolo’s labels depict Paolo as a representation of their winemaking philosophy. They believe that the best ingredient of a wine is the honesty of the producer; with patched trousers and an open heart, the man on their labels represents a life of sacrifices, a deep love for family, and a connection to the soil. It is this honesty and passion for winemaking that comes across in their beautiful wines.

TASTING NOTES 

Intense ruby red with fair purple nuances. Intensely vinous, heady, and ethereal with typical and prevailing fruity notes of cherry, liquorice, plums, violet and blackberry. Tannic, full-flavoured, dry, astringent and persistent, with a balanced acidity without excess. 

THE STORY TO KNOW

From the winery: We are a family winery, already in its fourth generation and we have always and exclusively produced and sold wines.

Our grandfather Carlin, son of our great-grandfather Paolo, was an indefatigable worker, bent from the hard work carried out in the vineyards for many years. However he was always joyful, with his fist clenched as a sign of determination and always striding forward. The work of the soil, the love for the family, a life full of sacrifices, his trousers patched, and an open heart.

The best ingredient of a wine is the honesty of the producer.
