This vibrant Barbaresco opens with loads of oak-inspired aromas and sweet spice with background tones of forest fruit, bramble, tar, cedar and licorice. The tannins are drying, firm and fuel the wine’s long finish.
The Produttori’s 2008 Barbaresco is simply fabulous. A sweet bouquet melds into expressive fruit in a Barbaresco that is exceptionally polished and refined. The 2008 boasts striking sweetness and inner perfume to match its understated, elegant personality. Quite frankly, the 2008 is very hard to resist today, as the tannins are quite polished. Unusually sweet, silky and refined, the 2008 will take the better part of a decade to show the full breadth of its pedigree. At $37, it is one of the very finest values in ageworthy wine from anywhere in the world. This is a magnificent showing from the Produttori and a great introduction to the 2008 harvest at this historic house. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. (AG) 91+
This bright red exhibits floral, cherry and tar flavors, with a firm edge of tannins closing the wine down on the finish. An elegant Barbaresco that should fall into place in a few years. (BS)
This is very perfumed with flowers and blueberries. Hints of rose petals as well. Full body, with firm tannins and a bright, focused finish. Gorgeous. Really well done from this cooperative! Drink now hold.
