Barbaresco (and Barbera, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo...)

Share

This is a brochure for a cooperative in Barbaresco that operated from 1894 for about 20 years, until WWI and hard times in general put an end to it. But the example was there, and in 1958 the idea of a local cooperative was revived, resulting in the Produttori del Barbaresco. From today's perspective it's hard to understand how hard life was in the region, but not only did the Produttori save Barbaresco, they established a level of consistent high quality that still provides a model of excellence today.

 

 

The "Map of the member owners of the winery" includes the famous name of Vacca - also founding members of the Produttori del Barbaresco.

Of course in addition to the Produttori, there were other excellent wines made in Barbaresco; some from locals like those listed below - Castello di Neive, Ceretto, De Forville, Moresco, La Spinona - and also Barbaresco made by top producers located in Barolo.

Produttori del Barbaresco 1970 Barbaresco

Black cherry and kirsch flavors are underlined by subtle hints of bresaola, dark chocolate, and fresh earth. It's not a powerful vintage, but nevertheless impresses with its lightness, litheness, and elegance (2/28/16).  Jonas Mendoza

Produttori del Barbaresco 1967 Barbaresco

Not the Riserva, but no slouch, this wine is still alive and drinking. It may even show a bit more fruit that the '67 Riservas. With proper handling (time to rest, and proper decanting) this is a real treat.

Produttori del Barbaresco 1974 Barbaresco

1974 was a sleeper vintage for the Produttori, and it has definitely impressed on two separate occasions while tasting vertical flights of the cooperative's normale. Ripe red and black cherry fruit flavors mingle with secondary notes of balsamic, dark chocolate, and spaded earth. The medium body and robustness is supported by a quite lithe texture (1/17/17).

Produttori del Barbaresco 1979 Barbaresco

I couldn't help but make the comparison initially to older Chianti, with flavors of dried red cherry and dried herbs. As the evening progressed, the wine became richer and weightier with darker fruit notes of black raspberry and brandied cherry with intensity similar to the blockbuster normale bottlings of 1971 and 1978. (1/17/17). Jonas Mendoza

Produttori del Barbaresco 1980 Barbaresco

Medium ruby color with hints of brick on rim. Black cherry and black tea flavors with prominent notes of hoisin and balsamic. Quite along its development, but still has firm tannins and resonant acidity (1/17/17). Jonas Mendoza

Roagna 1982 Vino da Tavola Crichet Paje

Crichet Paje comes from some very old vines in the Paje vineyard. Luca Roagna explains that for years  "because of the complications of local regulation we had to choose between callling the wine Barbaresco, or Crichet Paje — we could not call it Barbaresco Crichet Paje, so we chose to call it Crichet Paje... Crichet Paje is intended to be a unique and particular wine, an expression of our identity." It wasn't until 1996 that they were able to label the Crichet Paje as "Barbaresco Crichet Paje".
