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.

The 2004 Barbaresco Riserva Asili conveys an impression of sheer luxuriousness as it coats the palate with waves of ripe fruit that nearly manage to cover the wine's tannins. Generous and expansive on the palate, the wine reveals tons of depth and richness, with a long, satisfying finish. This remains a vibrant, pure Barbaresco in need of cellaring, yet readers who want to take this bottling out for a test drive won't be disappointed, but beware, the wine shut down quickly in the glass. Simply put, this is sublime stuff. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2024.

WA 93pts. - WS 92pts. - Winemaker Notes - This spectacular vineyard has created in the past some of the greatest Barbaresco and it has a strong following all over the world. The wine is intense, certainly not a monster but nevertheless with a very imposing personality. Usually quite close in its youth it opens up slowly showing impeccable complexity and style a classic Barbaresco, and also one of the most distinctive vineyard of the region.

Not a big Barbaresco, but a perfumed, delicate and very friendly red, with strawberry and floral character on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Best after 2011.

Aromas of raspberry and dried flowers follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a vanilla, berry and cherry aftertaste. This is backward and very fruity. Best after 2011.

Sattes Kirschrot; typischer Nebbiolo-Duft nach Weichselkirschen, Dörrobst, Nüssen und Holzgeschmack. Klassisch im Gaumen, kräftige Tannine und würzige Holzaromen. Feurig und anhaltend im Abgang.

Good full, medium red. Sexy, vibrant aromas of strawberry, flowers, truffle and minerals. Silky-sweet on entry, then energetic and strong in the middle, boasting lovely stuffing and superb definition. This rather powerful vintage of Asili really projects its fruit on the strong finish, which features serious tannic grip. The Produttoriandrsquo;s Asili bottling has been my default purchase here since the late andrsquo;70s.
