Barbaresco Elvio Pertinace "Vigneto Castellizzano" 1982/ #12721463
A wine which, as the counter-label of the time states, "does not come from ancient possessions, but from man's toil"; and which has a challenging and dutiful goal: to redeem the wine of Treiso
Pertinace, starting from the name, borrowed from the Roman leader and emperor Publio Elvio Pertinace, who was born where the cellar stands, has been witness since 1973 of an attachment to the land and to tradition that has never made concessions to fashions and trends. On a technical level, Pertinace has developed a style of vinification and aging that has remained faithful to the large barrels, even when the barrique winds blew strongly on those hills.
Treiso is part, together with Barbaresco, Neive and San Rocco Seno d'Elvio, of the 4 municipalities of Barbaresco DOCG; for some years the disciplinary has introduced the Additional Geographical Mentions, micro-territories to which the name of the vineyard can be added, including Castellizzano, Marcarini and Nervo, well represented in the Pertinace range.
Today the winery represents 20 members, for 110 hectares of regular rows that wind through the hills of the Langhe, and produces great Barbaresco DOCG in respect of tradition, with an aging capacity of up to 40 years, as evidenced by some 1982 magnums kept , but not jealously, in the cellar.
A wine, Barbaresco, which karma always has to deal with the other expression of Nebbiolo, Barolo, with respect to which, without detracting from the c.d. "King of wines", however, emerges for finesse, elegance, and great combinations.
