Brand Description

Founded in 1972 by Mario Barbero, Pertinace is named after the Roman Emperor Publio Elvio Pertinace who was born in the hillside sides of Barbaresco. The Winery, a cooperative, was formed by twelve farmers who over the years had become good friends. Among them they owned some of the choicest vineyard land in the region and supplied grapes to some of Italy's top winemakers. Over time, they developed a shared passion for producing the best wines from their own vineyards, which led to the decision to create a winery of their own. Thus, Pertinace was born. It was with this passion and dedication that the cooperative members jointly invested in the development of their vinification plant, bottling line and aging facilities.

NOTES OF

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking

ORIGINS
