Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Great complexity and full body, intense ripe fruit, tannins and very long finish. Perfect with egg-fresh pasta, white and red meat, game, venison and cheese.

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.

subtle, woodsmoke, flowers, perfume, mint, fresh fruit coulis, prosciutto, good acids, medium body, fresh fruit, red cherry, wild berry, very soft tannins, a touch meaty and a touch peppery on the MP, really nice feel with depth and richness yet not heavy in any way, lovely spiced berry fruit leads to a subtle long pomegranate seed finale

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

Tannins are never dominant in the wines from this vineyards; instead the Rio Sordo has a silky quality on the palate that makes it extremely attractive and seductive, never imposing: like a young, beautiful, aristocratic girl at her first debut into society: modest, shy, but totally confident of her beauty.

WS 93pts. - WA 92pts. - Winemaker Notes - Tannins are never dominant in the wines from this vineyards; instead the Rio Sordo has a silky quality on the palate that makes it extremely attractive and seductive, never imposing: like a young, beautiful, aristocratic girl at her first debut into society: modest, shy, but totally confident of her beauty. Maybe that is why the Rio Sordo is an all time favorite of my dearest friend, superb wine taster and president of Vias Imports, Mr. Fabrizio Pedrolli.
