Rediscovered in 1995, the Barbarossa vine is over 150 years old and grown exclusively at Fattoria Paradiso. The name dates back to Emperor Alemanno Federico who once stayed at Rocca di Bertinoro. It is a grainy red colour with a tendency towards orange. It has a strong, austere and long-lasting aroma, reminiscent of the withered rose and violets. It tastes dry, frank and generous.

The producer

La Fattoria Paradiso manages 50 hectors of vineyards on limestone-rich land - land steeped in wine-making tradition. The vineyards are situated at a medium altitude on the foothills of the Tosco-Romagnolo Apennines. They benefit from a congenial climate and the loving care that Mario Pezzi lavishes on the vines. The result of this care and attention is the best "cru" wines of the region. These wines are obtained from carefully chosen species of vines, such as Barbarossa or Pezzi, which dates back to 1955 and led to the company winning D.O.C. status. The origins of other species, such as Pagadebit and Cagnina, are long forgotten. In the early 1970s the company won further recognition for the purity and longevity of Sangiovese Vigna Lepri. Until this time the Sangiovese species of grapevine did not have a reputation for longevity - so much so that it was dubbed an Easter wine by the national press. In the summer of 1979 five thousand bottles "Lepri Vine" were stowed away. When they returned to the light in June 1985 they were greatly appreciated. Overwhelmed at the congratulations he received, Mario Pezzi claimed that the credit was due to the roses, which flower every year on the estate.

Best with

It is a good accompaniment for roast red and white meats, wild fowl, game and mature cheeses.

How to serve it

It is advisable to decant the wine into a large crystal carafe in order to allow it to breathe and so that its full roundness can be appreciated. It should be served at 18-20 centigrade degrees. The best glasses are plain, clear, smooth crystal goblets.

How to keep

If conserved well it has an average life of five to ten years. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a dark, humid wine cellar at approximately 12-15 °C.
