A lovely Barbaresco with solid acidity and a cool, composed character featuring crisp cherry, soil and dried floral aromatics. the wine is medium bodied and fairly elegant with small but precise tannins and a taut backend that leads to a long, sneaky finish. Needs a year or two in bottle to really express itself but still delicious even at this early stage. 90pts

A brilliant ruby red color that, after two hours of decanting, was explosive on the nose with cherry fruit, sweet tobacco, and chalk dust. The nose came across as a bit hot but very expressive. On the palate more cherry, or possibly cranberry with rose petal, tar and a bit of pepper. Expansive on the mid-palate with sweet fruit. A hint of charred wood and more cherry on the finish. This can't be a $26 bottle... but it is!

First Barbaresco tasting...probably should have decanted, will re-visit tomorrow. High acid, light to medium body, but very fragrant/strong nose with cherry/spice notes. Lots of ripe cherries on the palate, high alcohol, moderately tannic finish. Fairly "in-your-face" and acidic for my tastes, otherwise probably would have given it a higher rating, but I'm not sure that this is my style. Drank with pizza.

Most other people have noted the long finish, medium body and great color. I was surprised how long the finish was. Definitely got the spice and the crispness. Will definitely be buying more and hoping to keep it around for a while

Dark cherry and allspice, very aromatic, medium-bodied; needs time in bottle to round out mouth-puckering tannins. Promises seductive complexity.

Barbaresco DOCG is produced every year from the 100 hectares of vineyards controlled by the Produttori within the appellation, mainly in the Barbaresco village itself. In the best vintages, when the quality of the grapes is great everywhere, the historical crus are vinified separately and Barbaresco is then produced with the grapes from the remaining vineyards. In normal vintages, the crus are not produced and their grapes go in the Barbaresco blend, therefore enhancing the quality of the final wine. Thanks to the variety of vineyards, every year Barbaresco from the "Produttori" is the truest expression of the vintage with great harmony and balanced.

1999 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbarescomdash;This wine strikes me as a cross of the 2000 and the 2001, and shows a very pretty nose of truffles, spices and eucalyptus, with plenty of bright rich red fruits on the palate. 88 points/drink now-2011

Always a great value, the 2001 Barbaresco is very floral and intense on the nose, with notes of anise, eucalyptus, and coffee beans. It shows plenty of clean, focused, sweet fruit on a medium-bodied frame. Although this estatersquo;s wines have proven that they can age quite well, I typically prefer them on the younger side, while the fruit is still present. Anticipated maturity: 2006ndash;2016.

This classic, mid-weight Barbaresco possesses plenty of clean, bright fruit framed by elegant tannins, showing notable harmony.

The 2006 Barbaresco is a gorgeous, generous Barbaresco loaded with ripe dark fruit. This is an especially harmonious, refined Barbaresco from the Produttori that is also somewhat unusual for its dark, brooding personality. Licorice, leather and tar linger on the powerful finish. Today the wine is remarkable for its depth and concentration, while the aromatic complexity will develop in bottle. If the regular Barbaresco holds this much power, I can only wonder what the Riservas might have in store. Simply put, this is a marvelous effort. This is Lot 9.125 Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2031.

This comes from a "Cantine Sociale", also known as a cooperative of growers known as Produttori del Barbaresco. This is in fact the most important wine of their lineup since it comprises the bulk of their production. Youthful upon opening with dark berries and chalk-driven tannins.

Exhibits lots of strawberry and rose on the nose. Full- to medium-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. A delicate style. Best after 2010.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Once again, the Produttori have turned out a gem in their 2005 Barbaresco. A beautiful, perfumed Nebbiolo, the wine flows effortlessly from the glass with captivating notes of crushed flowers, raspberries, sweet herbs and spices. This classic, mid-weight Barbaresco possesses plenty of clean, bright fruit framed by elegant tannins, showing notable harmony. Simply put, this is a classic wine Piedmont lovers wont want to miss. Ideally, the wine should be cellared for a few years, but readers will have a hard time exercising such patience." - Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate Cheese Pairings: Fontina, Gouda, CheddarFood Pairings: Braised Beef, Truffles and Truffle Oil
