Produttori del Barbaresco

The Greatest Value Barbaresco... Without Question!
"At this price, Produttori can be both your Saturday special and Wednesday night sipper." D.G.

There is no better Barbaresco value than Produttori del Barbaresco!

And, with the new release of this perennial darling, you have a particularly outstanding vintage, 2015.

We've written about it on several occasions - 2015 is a vintage for the history books whether Piedmont, Tuscany, Rhone, Bordeaux or Burgundy.

Speaking of Burgundy, Produttori is known for its Burgundian style and flair. This Nebbiolo-based red exudes amazing flavor profiles of a Pinot Noir, but with finesse and structure that is distinctly a Barbaresco.

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. An elegant body of black cherries round out the focused and polished finish with dusty, sweet tannins. Grip and structure will allow this wine to be enjoyed now or aged for a decade.

As we've said in the past about Produttori del Barbaresco: "At this price, Produttori can be both your Saturday special and Wednesday night sipper."

There aren't many wines that deliver this much pleasure and value for the money!

Amazing!

THE WINE ADVOCATE

93 / 100

"I tasted this wine after bottling but before its commercial release. It was scheduled to be released in October, but because Produttori del Barbaresco is already out of stock of the 2014 Barbaresco, they decided to move this release up and shorten waiting times... The 2015 vintage opens to a visibly darker color and thicker concentration compared to recent past vintages. Next to the upcoming 2016 and 2017 editions, we can expect 2015 to be the most fruit-forward of the three. You get dark tones of plum and blackberry with dry tannins at the rear."
