Why is Produttori del Barbaresco on everyone's radar with each release?
Because, there is no better Barbaresco value than Produttori del Barbaresco!
And, in 2018, you get a kicker, a Super Barbaresco.
In 2018, the Produttori consortium agreed to forego producing single-vineyard cuvees.
Where did all that premium fruit go? The best fruit was hand-selected and put in this tremendous Piedmont red (btw, those single-vineyard Barbarescos fetch $125+ per bottle).
This succulent Nebbiolo boasts violets, dried spices, rose petals, mushroom, tobacco, tangy cherry, and raspberry, along with hints of mint on the cool, inviting finish. An elegant frame of black and red cherries rounds out the polished finish with dusty, sweet tannins. Grip and structure will allow this wine to be enjoyed now or aged for a decade.
Produttori is known for its Burgundian style and flair. It exudes impressive Nebbiolo structure and finesses with hints of Pinot Noir cherry, though distinctly Barbaresco.
There aren't many wines that deliver this much pleasure and value for the money.
At this price, Produttori can be both your Wednesday night sipper or Saturday special.
"Lovely Barbaresco, with all the typical Nebbiolo characteristics... Delicious now, but give it a year or two. It will only get better." James Suckling
