Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco 2014

Member Review by zufrieden:

The Produttori del Barbaresco 2014 is as expected: cherries and cranberries on the nose with considerable acidity (partially due to the ordinary vintage in 2014) and medium tannin (this is, of course 100% Nebbiolo, but slightly lighter in style than Barolo, but most of you already know that well); Flavor is intense with heavy tannin (oak) ceiling and cherry floor. The length is good - quite long - with plenty of acidity for those al forno dishes such as Lasagna or Pizza. My preference is not for too, too much tannic pucker, and this wine has plenty - but it comes with the territory. Lots of almond and peach pit bitterness - again, as with the territory so to speak. This will "blow off" with decanting or air exposure for an hour or two. A wine to hold for another five years. Good Italian machismo here. 90.

Founded in 1958, the priest of the village of Barbaresco, recognizing that the only way small properties could survive was by joining their efforts, gathered together nineteen small growers and founded the Produttori del Barbaresco. From its humble beginnings making the first three vintages in the church basement, Produttori del Barbaresco has grown to a 52 member co-operative with 250 acres of Nebbiolo vineyards in the Barbaresco appellation and an annual production of over 500,000 bottles. Its vineyards amount to almost 1/6 of the vineyards of the area. Each member is in full control of their land, growing Nebbiolo grapes with the skill and dedication they have honed over generations. Playing a key role in elevating the quality level of Barbaresco over the years, Produttori del Barbaresco produces a simpler Nebbiolo Langhe, a Barbaresco blend and nine single vineyard wines produces in premier vineyards: Asili, Rabajà, Pora, Montestefano, Ovello, Pajè, Montefico, Muncagota and Rio Sordo.
