Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Ovello 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"One of the most complete of these 2007s, as the freshness of the site works to counter some of the more extroverted qualities of the year. The Ovello possesses stunning depth in its fruit, expressive inner perfume and firm yet refined tannins that provide the backdrop for all of the elements to come together beautifully in the glass." - Wine Advocate

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.

Good full red. Currant, smoke, menthol and a touch of oak on the nose. Smooth and sweet but at the same time vinous and youthful, with the currant and smoke flavors carrying through onto the palate. This suave, deep wine finishes with substantial,... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2007 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Ovello Riserva 750ml

An austere, sinewy style, exhibiting strawberry, tea, white pepper, eucalyptus and iron flavors. Its all underscored by dense, dusty tannins, with plenty of grip on the tightly wound finish. Best from 2015 through 2027. 1,166 cases made. -BS Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2007 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Ovello Riserva 750ml
