From the heart of the Langhe comes this stunningly elegant, single cru Barbaresco from Poderi Elia. The Stella family has been making wine in the town of Neive since 1890, but only recently have they begun to garner international attention. Tasting the wine today, it is easy to understand why. The spectacular bouquet offers tones of red currant and Morello cherry layered over toasty oak; the structure is marblesolid, with fine-grained tannins that perfectly compliment the powerful Nebbiolo fruit. WINEMAKER BIOGRAPHY Federico Stella is one of those pensive, unflagging producers who has contributed to Piedmont’s sterling reputation for wine. Everything he creates is the result of meticulous thought and patience, with his opus of Barbaresco slowly building over time. ENOLOGIST Federico Stella
