Produttori del Barbaresco Langhe Nebbiolo 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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.

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

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.

This 100% Nebbiolo has its vineyard orientation on the steep hillsides with South, Southwest and Southeast exposure. They are hand harvested in small crates from late September to late October and after its first year of vat aging, is aged for two years in wood and then cellared for 6 months after bottling.

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.

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.

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.

Medium red. Sexy aromas of redcurrant, game, truffle and tobacco. A juicy, aromatic midweight, with a slightly medicinal licorice quality and bright acidity lifting the flavors of red fruits, smoke and game. Finishes with substantial, slightly drying tannins. This was bottled barely a week before my visit.

Bright cherry, strawberry, floral, licorice and herbal aromas and flavors highlight this fragrant, elegant red, which is silky and pure, with fine ripe tannins for support. Shows excellent length, with an aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral. Best from 2015 through 2028. 23,333 cases made. -BS The 2009 Barbaresco shows personality and good cheer with a good dose of dried fruit and savory spice. There are some elements that make the wine seem more aged than it really is. Cured meat and old leather emerge. But then the wine suddenly surprises you with an entourage of Nebbiolo-based tones like dried mint and licorice that tell you it still has loads of life within. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.
