Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano 1995

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit syrupy on the nose with wild red berry fruit tones over some chalky soil notes. There’s a slight hoisin/ sweet tea note here so perhaps this has seen less than ideal storage. A bit fat on entry with an initial rush of black cherry fruit that is followed by a rather flaccid, hot, short mid-palate. The nose develops a sweet candied element with air and the roundness the wine exhibits up front is quickly clipped on the short finish. 86pts

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.
