Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Ovello 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.

Attractive aromas of dried flowers and crushed dark fruits. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and bright acidity. Goes on and on. Reserved and fresh. Needs time. Best after 2008.

Ovello is one of Barbarescorsquo;s fresher microclimates, so it can be no surprise that the 2001 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello is quite backward at this stage. It is a stunning display of Nebbiolo with expressive aromatics, generous fruit, prominent minerality and plenty of personality. Full-bodied and long on the palate, it is still somewhat reticent today, although all the ingredients are clearly in place for this to offer outstanding drinking in a few yearsrsquo; time. Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2021.
