Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco


Since 1958, Produttori del Barbaresco has been the reference point for classic Barbaresco. When the cooperative was founded by a parish priest, it was comprised of 19 grape growing families. It has since grown to 60 growers, who own the lion’s share of Barbaresco’s top vineyards. In lesser years, only one wine is made. In strong years there can be up to up to 10 unique wines, representing 9 crus. The managing director of the winery is Aldo Vacca.

The Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco is made from 100% Nebbiolo grape sourced from 54 growers. The wine was fermented for 30 days on the skins and aged 24 months in large oak casks.

“The 2017 Barbaresco shows just how appealing this vintage can be. In 2017, the warm, dry growing season gave the Barbaresco an extra kick of richness that fills out its frame and adds so much immediacy. Sweet red berry fruit, cinnamon, rose petal and mint are open in the glass, but it is the wine’s seductive radiance that wins the day. Pora, Ovello, Montestefano, Muncagota and Rio Sordo are the main vineyards used for the straight Barbaresco. The 2017 is such an inviting and expressive wine. Don’t miss it!” – 94 points, Vinous

“The 2017 Barbaresco, sourced from 100 hectares and 54 growers, was aged for 24 months in large oak casks. It offers layers of aromatics woven together with tar, forested earth, dried cherry, and sweet tobacco. The palate is ripe and pure, with raspberry leather, tea leaf, and blood orange. It is mouth-filling, with fruit that is long and persistent, fine tannins, and a lifted finish. Finessed and elegant, the 2017 is drinking beautifully now and will continue to drink well over the next 15 years. 2021-2036.” – 95 points, Jeb Dunnuck
