Winemaker Gianni Testa produces this classic example of Barbaresco from 100% Nebbiolo blended from a group of family farms in the region. Aged for 18 months in large oak casks, this wine is ideal to serve with rich pasta dishes, red meats, game and aged cheeses. We tasted through the entire line and were very impressed with the price/quality ratio of these wines. Look for an expressive nose bursting with ripe fruits and spices, this wine is rich and sultry in the mouth with a long, textured finish.

Wine Advocate reports: 'Produttori del Barbaresco is like that long-lost friend who always picks up a lively conversation no matter how many years have passed since your last meeting. It’s the ultimate fallback wine: it’s never intimidating or awkward. It’s always a pleasure to drink...'

Wine AdvocateTo be released in September, the 2014 Barbaresco is a beautiful wine that encompasses the important qualities that we look for in fine Nebbiolo. Ultimately, this is the kind of vintage that transfers best to the delicate grape. It saw a long growing season (Nebbiolo loves a late harvest) and steep diurnal temperature shifts to lock in the freshness of aromas. The mouthfeel is a bit thinner in texture, but it delivers plenty of beautiful length and endurance instead. It offers crisp tones of cherry fruit with licorice, wet earth and blue flowers. The line of Barbaresco Riserva wines from the various single vineyards will be made in 2014 (and will be released in early 2018).

Wine SpectatorFragrant, with cherry, strawberry and rose notes, this elegant red offers flavors of berry fruit, licorice and underbrush, ending with a firm grip of tannins and chewy licorice and spice accents. Best from 2019 through 2032. 23,333 cases made.
