Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Montefico Italy 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Mittleres Purpurrot mit ziegelroter Randzone; feminines Blüten- und Beerenbouquet mit Noten von Rosen, Kirschen und Dörrobst. Im Gaumen herrlich reif mit abgerundeten, aber noch präsenten Tanninen und einer guten Säurestruktur. Verschwenderische Aromen von roten Beeren und Hagebutten. Ein sehr eleganter Lagen-Barbaresco, der als Essensbegleiter voll auftrumpft.

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.

This Barbaresco is full of smokey and deep red fruits. It's similar to the Montestefano, but less aggressive when young. No doubt this will age marvelously.
