The Barbaresco “Ad altiora” shows a dense garnet red colour with light orange reflections; it offers a wide and full fragrance of spices and liquorice. Its flavour denotes a full-bodied wine with sweet tannins that bring to a long and rich ending.
Why have we selected this wine?
The king of the viticulture of Alba is the grape Nebbiolo. The most world-famous wines originate from it. Barbaresco is certainly one of them. The best exposed vineyards of Bric Montersino are always devoted to Nebbiolo to obtain the full ripening of the grape in the advanced autumn (around the second half week of October)
Alberto and Ezio
Michele Taliano winery was founded in 1930 and today it is run by the third generation Alberto and Ezio Taliano. The winery is based in Montà D'Alba in the heart of the Roero wine-region and the family, due to their very old roots is known with the nickname of "Re Cit" that in piedmontese dialect means "Little Kings".
Like the family, also Taliano's wines have always been a great expression of the traditional and timeless Piedmontese wines. In the mid-nineties, Michele's sons, Alberto and Ezio took over and began to renovate the farm. Besides renewing the buildings, they also introduced state of the art new wine-making technologies to further increase the quality of the production and refinement of the wines.
