Whilst overflowing with intense red fruit aromas on the nose and palate, this medium-bodied nebbiolo beauty from Produttori del Barbaresco also presents hints of white pepper and aniseed, complemented and supported by both bright tannins and a fresh acidity.
Producer Information: Produttori del Barbaresco
Produttori del Barbaresco has a long and distinguished history and great wines have always been made here. Prior to 1894, Nebbiolo grapes were sold to make Barolo wine or simply labelled 'Nebbiolo di Barbaresco'. In 1894, Domizio Cavazza, headmaster of the Royal Enological School of Alba and a Barbaresco resident, created the first cooperative, the 'Cantine Sociali', but it was forced to close in the 1920s due to fascist economic rule.
In 1958, the priest of the village of Barbaresco gathered together nineteen small growers and founded the Produttori del Barbaresco. United once again, the small growers continued the work started by Domizio Cavazza, producing only Barbaresco wine and enhancing both the reputation of the wine and the village.
The Produttori del Barbaresco now has 50 members and 100 hectares (250 acres) of Nebbiolo vineyards in the Barbaresco appellation.
