Produttori del Barbaresco - a large collection from Italy

Share

A shocking number of years have now gone by during which I have been able to taste a great many Barbarescos and Barolos. Thus far, I have two firm conclusions from the experience: 1) Bruno Giacosa is King, making the greatest wines of the region and perhaps in all of Italy into the early 2000s. Giacosa’s wines are among the most expensive of the region, so my second conclusion is more important for something closer to daily life: 2) the Produttori del Barbaresco made the most consistently good wines, all of which offer incredible quality-price rapport. Many bottles of Produttori have been superb (including a lovely and elegant 1967 Riserva Pora, tasted at a recent dinner, where it was much admired), and I have never had a bad bottle of their wine. We love having the Produttori wines on the shelf here because we can recommend them without any caveat. Even if your anniversary or birthday is a far-from-sought-after vintage (say, 1984), if it’s the Produttori then you are going to get a very good bottle of wine for the year - and another fine example of how good winemakers make good wine.

Please note: These wines will be available for delivery or pick-up from Thursday, November 30th.

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 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 1975 Barbaresco

Brambly black cherry with undertones of black raisin and sweet dirt. Quite developed with secondary/tertiary notes of hoisin, dried mushroom, and dried meat. After 40 years, it still has plenty of structure and only started to reveal itself after being double-decanted eight hours earlier (1/17/17)! Jonas Mendoza

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

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 1970 Barbareco Riserva Pora

Still doing very well at 40+ years, with intense mature Nebbiolo aromatics, dry and savory; the wine is not overly tannic, but no Piemontese would ever serve this except at table, with a main-course meat dish like ossobuco or something grilled; do so and you will have a memorable treat.
