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

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

So, here we are, with this affordable Nebbiolo. Clear, translucent ruby colour in the glass that reminded me of Pinot Noir or Beaujolais. This wine was softer and juicier than I expected. Notes of cherry with some raspberry and plum were dominant, although there were still slight leathery notes. More of the same on the palate, with some spice and mint or menthol. Well integrated acidity isn't really as bracing as you see with other Italian wine. Short-moderate length that leaves you with a drying feeling from the tannin. Although it might be a touch lean, this wine still felt fresh,young, approachable and ready to drink now. *FYI - I read that Langhe is a big area that encompasses both Barolo and Barbaresco, so it's easier for grapes to make the cut. That probably explains our lower price point.

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.

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.

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.

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.
