Editorial Reviews for Produttori del Barbaresco Langhe Nebbiolo
Very aromatic with a really compelling nose filled wild berries, balsamic spices, some cinnamon and a bit of minty fresh herbs. This is intense and ripe in the mouth with impressive complexity and freshness. It has a lovely, lightly chewy feel due to the significant ripe tannins and fine acidity. In the mouth this is remarkably aromatic, and quite Barbaresco like with its masses of ripe fresh balsamic fruit, nice cranberry and strawberry notes topped with herbal, bay leaf and rose petal top notes. A big Langhe Nebbiolo with alcohol of 14.5% this is powerful and full, though today it does seem just a bit light on the finish. 91pts

Nebbiolo this good, at this price, is unheard of. Lively earthy berry fruit floats atop fine tannins and great acidity. This Cantina's wines holds up to the producer's excellent reputation.
The 2007 Nebbiolo delle Langhe is an especially ripe, full-bodied wine from the Produttori. Sweet, enticing aromas lead to an opulent core fruit. This is an incredibly concentrated wine with superb depth and tons of style, all within the context of traditionally-made Nebbiolo. The richness of the fruit completely covers the tannins, making this an incredibly accessible young Nebbiolo. The Produttori's Nebbiolo delle Langhe is the estate's third selection from 100& Barbaresco-designated vineyards - usually younger vines - aged in cask. It wasn't that many years ago that the Nebbiolo was a highly inconsistent wine. Today, it is arguably the finest value in Langhe Nebbiolo. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017. Produttori del Barbaresco continues to make better wines with each passing vintage.
The 2008 Langhe Nebbiolo shows gorgeous depth and purity in a core of dark fruit, spices and minerals. The finish is long and polished, especially for a wine at this level. This fresh, vinous Nebbiolo offers terrific balance and is a great choice for readers who want to begin an exploration into Nebbiolo - one of the world's noble grapes - without breaking the bank. Once again, the Produttori have turned out what may very well be the very finest value in Nebbiolo, and all from young vines in Barbaresco to boot! Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016.
A pretty ruby red with pure clarity and purple reflections. Aromatics and flavors are persistent and complex with hints of violets, wild strawberries, raspberries, cherries and a warm spicy finish.
A tannic, lean young red, this wine's umami savor is built on mulling spices and salty mushroom scents. Decant it for a gamey stew.
Pepper and spice on the nose with hints of anise and herbs. Lively tannins and a long finish makes this wine a nice introduction for those who are curious about the great Barolos and Barbarescos of Piedmont.
Made from declassified Barbaresco lots at this legendary cooperative winery, this outperforms many more ambitious wines - without trying to be anything that it's not. That said, the wine is brisk and clean. The tannins have a hint of pomegrante-seed bitterness, but don't interfere with the length of the tart cherry flavor. It's the sort of wine Italians would eat with song birds caught from the wild, when there were still song birds to catch. Now they might decant it for farm-raised roast squab.
A second label for the Barbaresco and made with the grapes from young vines or those vineyards that produced a less intense and concentrated juice. It still has the quality necessary to be classified a Barbaresco, but the winery declassifies it in order to sell it at a younger age and maintain the Barbaresco quality as high as possible. Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 88 points by James Suckling: Delicate light for the vintage but shows attractive spice and smoked meat and dried berry character. Medium body, chewy finish. Better in 2013.
