1973 Bersano Barbaresco 50cl
A 50cl bottle of 1973 Bersano Barbaresco.
Barbaresco is made with the Nebbiolo grape variety in the Piedmont region in an area of the Langhe immediately to the east of Alba and must be aged for a minimum of 2 years (at least 9 months in oak) prior to release, and aged for at least 4 years to be considered a riserva. Similar in style to Barolo, the principal difference between the two wines is that the tannins of Barbaresco tend to soften sooner, making the wines more immediately approachable.
Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note damage to the labels. The cork is low in the neck by around 1mm.
The Whisky.Auction team has inspected this lot and found it to be suitable for sale. However, please note the absence of a condition statement does not imply that this lot is in perfect condition or free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing. We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults. Older bottles often contain sediment. Wines are more fragile than spirits and older wines may be listed, at our discretion, for their historical interest rather than their drinkability. We can in no way guarantee that they are still within their plateau of maturity or to the buyer’s taste.
This bottle does not appear to be leaking. While we take every care to pack bottles securely we cannot guarantee that old corks and closures will not leak in transit.
