Press and Tasting Notes

ANTONIO GALLONI

90/100

"The 2013 is a tasty, easygoing Barbaresco to drink over the next decade or more. There is good depth in the glass, with pretty notes of tobacco, licorice, herb and worn-in leather that add nuance. Sweet red cherry, po ... Read More »

THE REVIEW

Run, don't walk! This amazing Barbaresco is $100 fruit in a $30 bottle due to a simple technicality. Let us explain:
    Produttori is a "consortium" of farmers that must decide in unison when to bottle a "Riserva" Barbaresco.
    In any given year, if just one farmer in the consortium does not agree to make a Riserva Barbaresco, all that wonderful Riserva fruit gets bottled in the regular Barbaresco bottling. And, that's exactly what happened in 2012. This means LUCKY YOU! "I can't think of too many wines that deliver this much pleasure and value." Vinous
     Enjoy this gift from Piedmont that boasts violets, dried spices, rose petals, tobacco, tangy cherry and raspberry aromas along with flowers and mint on the cool, inviting nose. Silky and pure, it has lovely inner-mouth feel from the red berry flavors. An elegant body of black cherries round out the focused and polished finish with dusty, sweet tannins. Nice grip and structure will allow this wine to be enjoyed now or aged for a decade. In the 2012 Produttori Barbaresco, you are getting one of the most ridiculous value Barbarescos made in years.Read More »
