Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Torre 1980

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This might have been drinkable on it’s own but in this company all of its defects stood out. While showing some attractive white mushroom, leather and mint aromas this also had levels of chicken coop stink that were difficult to handle. resolved and rather lean in the mouth, this was a touch dried out though it retained a hint of blue framed black cherry fruit on the palate. A bit rough, powerful and raw in the mouth, this feels like a lot of press wine was used here. The nose clears up considerably with air, and while this holds a certain appeal with its powerful, tannic profile, it remains a rather ordinary wine. 85pts

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.
