Barbaresco is one of the great wines of the Piedmont region in northwestern Italy. Historically it was called Nebbiolo di Barbaresco, as Nebbiolo it the name of the grape varietal used in its production. General Michael von Melas of Austria celebrated his victory over the French in 1799 with a hearty glass of Barbaresco. Barbaresco has changed since then, however, as it wasn’t until the mid 19th Century that it was vinified into a dry style.
