Casali del Barone is a range of Italian wines which encapsulates the winemaking tradition and history of the Piedmont region. Casali del Barone Barbaresco DOCG is a great example of this iconic Italian wine. Made from the Nebbiolo grape renowned for its great tanins, fruitiness and perfumed aroma, Barbaresco is often described a junior Barolo.

This wine is a real crowd pleaser. Casali del Barone Barbaresco recently won a Gold medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2018.

Barbaresco is one of two outstanding DOCG zones in Piedmont to produce this classic expression of this fickle grape. Notoriously, Nebbiolo is as picky and stubborn as Pinot Noir and it is with this that both Barbaresco and Barolo have been likened to the great wines of Burgundy.

Made from the best of Casali del Barone’s vineyards, this Barbaresco is produced from grapes hand-harvested from the slopes of the sandy limestone Langhe hills, North of Alba. The wine is fermented for 3 weeks and then spends a full 26 months ageing, of which, 9 months is within the traditional large oak Botti. 

This is a wine with a vibrant red garnet colour with elegant and complex aromas of violet, red fruits, spice and toasted nuances. An intense palate with rich ripe red fruits, a velvety texture and soft supple tannins. This is a fresh and expressive example which finishes with great depth and length.

More Information


Daniele Ress, Casali Del Barone

Daniele Ress is the technical director of Schenk Italian wineries. Working as a "flying winemaker" he has collaborated with the 150 growers that make up the Cantina Vallebelbo Sca agricultural cooperative to create the Casali del Barone range.

Together they have about 500 hectares of vineyards in the heart of the Langhe, on the hills around Santo Stefano Belbo.


Piedmont, Italy

Piedmont is affected by a tug-of-war between two weather systems: the ice cold Alps and the warm Mediterranean temperature. This variation makes the whole area fill up with morning fog that slowly burns off during the day. This means the land higher up on the hills gets more sun. More sun = happy grapes = good wine. It's why Piedmont (or Piemonte) is considered to be Italy's best wine growing region.



Often referred to as the queen of black grapes, Nebbiolo is the grape of legendary wines such as Barolo and Barberesco. The name derives from nebia which translates as "fog", due to the morning fog which hangs around the vineyards.

The wines are high in tannins, repaying the patient with their ageworthyness. With time they will often develop flavours of violets, herbs, dark fruit and truffles.
