Produttori del Barbaresco Langhe Nebbiolo 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Nebbiolo. Medium body vintage, bright red fruit and spicy notes of white pepper and anise. Aged 6 months in large oak barrels. Food matches: Pizzas and pastas, white and red meat, rich fish dishes. Drink: 2014-2018. Not yet reviewed; 2011 vintage rated 90 points by International Wine Cellar: Good medium red. Explosive aromas of dark plum, blueberry, blackberry, smoke, meat and pungent spices, plus a whiff of overripe strawberry. Plush, sweet and substantial, showing an almost exotic aspect to the flavors of strawberry, smoky barbecue sauce and West Indian spices. As large-scaled as the 2010 Barbaresco but less elegant. This is the Produttori's biggest and fullest nebbiolo bottling ever, notes commercial director Aldo Vacca, who added that all of the grapes could have gone into the production of Barbaresco. Has the acidity to cut through grilled pork ribs. I've seen this top value on the shelf for as low as $20.

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.

Below 15 years old, 20-23 days on skins, 6 months in wood Very balsamic on the nose with a huge pine resin top note, some sweet woody notes, sweet red fruit and a hint of mint. Rather sweet/tart in the mouth, though mostly tart with lots of cranberry and raspberry flavors. This is less balsamic in the mouth than on the nose, but it retains some of the woodland spice character through the modest finish, which lacks some fruit covering the dry finishing tannins. 85pts

Nice fruit as well as mineral, floral, spice and herbal notes. Still young, tannins should soften with time.
