Notes

100% Nebbiolo

About Produttori del Barbaresco:
Dating back to 1894, but officially founded in 1958, Produttori del Barbaresco, along with Gaja and Giacosa, has defined this famous Piedmontese village and its wines. 51 members farm more than 100 hectares of prime Nebbiolo in Barbaresco. Each family is in full control of their land and farm with centuries-old skill and dedication. It is often regarded as the greatest co-operative in the world.

‘These fine, traditionally built Barbarescos deserve serious attention,’ writes Antonio Galloni, as they compete with many wines of the region at double or even triple the price. The latest 2013 vintage has been declared an ‘epic vintage of classic proportions and superb pedigree’ by Galloni. He suggests there is more consistency and purity than the stellar 2010 vintage.

Vinification:
In stainless steel tanks, at 30°c (85°f), 28 days on the skins, pumping over 2-3 times a day, malo-lactic completed.

Tasting notes:
'To be released in September, the 2014 Barbaresco is a beautiful wine that encompasses the important qualities that we look for in fine Nebbiolo. Ultimately, this is the kind of vintage that transfers best to the delicate grape. It saw a long growing season (Nebbiolo loves a late harvest) and steep diurnal temperature shifts to lock in the freshness of aromas. The mouthfeel is a bit thinner in texture, but it delivers plenty of beautiful length and endurance instead. It offers crisp tones of cherry fruit with licorice, wet earth and blue flowers. The line of Barbaresco Riserva wines from the various single vineyards will be made in 2014 (and will be released in early 2018).' – Wine Advocate, 94/100
