Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Montefico 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

"1997 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Rabaja—Dark, translucent ruby in color similar to the 1996. The 1997 Rabaja is an immediate, seductive wine with sweet and supple tannins that make it irresistible. The nose of spices and alcohol is followed by rich flavors of cherries in liqueur, menthol, cocoa, balsam and spices. A full bodied and decadent wine that delivers great drinking pleasure, this Barbaresco captures the easy approachability of the vintage, but manages to balance ripe fruit with a freshness that gives the wine a sense of youthfulness...91."

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.

[Pasta Don Elmo] Brick red color, did not appear aged. On the nose floral and minerals. On the palate, light fruit (cherries), tart red fruit, mineral, and occasional citrus on the finish. Needs food, the bottle sung with some chunks of parm. Nice wine, but not as lively as the 97 Rio Sordo. Drinking now, I dont see huge improvements with time--however I like my wine on the young side
