"The Paitin 2017 Barbaresco Serraboella Sorì Paitin shows a level of finesse and elegance that is rare to find in this hot and dry vintage. The wine delivers seamless transitions with aromas of wild fruit, ferrous earth, licorice, tar and crushed flowers. Those nuances are delivered with enormous purity and focus, rendering a super delicate and finessed expression. There is a touch of tannin tightness here, this being the only sign of the summer heat, but the wine unfolds smoothly nonetheless. Bottle production in this vintage is about 10,000, down from 15,000 bottles made in 2016. These wines from Luca Pasquero Elia and his family are some of my favorites in this entire report. Yes, there are wines with higher scores, but the Paitin portfolio shows an unmistakable magic, across the board, with these new releases. They are accessible and most importantly, relatable."

"The 2017 Barbaresco Sorì Paitin is another gorgeous wine from the Pasquero family. It has more power, depth and structure than the Serraboella, with a slightly darker tonalities of fruit and more tannic heft, but the differences between the two wines are not as marked as they can be. That’s what happens sometimes in warm, dry vintages – the differences between sites are baked out. Even so, the Sorì Paitin offers quite a bit of character. I would cellar it for at least a few years."
