Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

"The Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano is another of the more fruit-driven wines in 2001. It is not terribly expressive in its aromatics, yet it comes to life on the palate where it offers notable fullness and sweetness, with masses of sweet cherry fruit and a big, strapping personality. Although it is not especially complex it will offer much pleasure. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019...91" WA 10.06.

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.
