  • The wines of Matteo Baldin (‘Teo’ to his friends) are storied in legend. The winery is hidden within a remote village based in the outreaches of Alto Piemonte; gaining an audience with the winemaker is a matter of cosmic fortune, and of course, access to the wines is nearly impossible given the microscopic level of production. The traditional blend of the zone is 70% Neb, 20% Croatina, and 10% Vespolina, to which Baldin steadfastly adheres. Though it’s not 100% Neb, the wine can sternly hold its own against any of its Langhe based cousins. It has the elegance of Castiglione Falletto, the smooth edges and balance of Barolo with the tannic spine of Serralunga. Any fan of the ‘traditional’ or ‘classic’ style of Barolo / Barbaresco will find sublime enjoyment here.
