Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting notes: the Barolo of the Barbaresco, very complex, very powerful, more tannic that the other Crus, still retains the elegance of a classic Barbaresco.

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.

WS 93pts. - WA 93pts. - Winemaker Notes - The extra heat of the south facing slope gives to the Montestefano a fuller body and an almost meaty texture with impressive depth. For all these reasons it is probably the Barbaresco that most reminds of Barolo where tar and roses prevail on the refined violet flavors. Despite this massive attitude it remains a true Barbaresco, never too heavy on the palate and with a classy finish that lingers on the palate without overwhelming our senses.

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