- Outstanding wine from this vintage
- Traditionally-crafted, ageworthy Barbaresco
- Available 2nd week of June
Produttori del Barbaresco has often been referenced as the 'greatest value in age-worthy wine' when their Barbaresco could be purchased widely and deeply by wine lovers and cellared confidently for up to 20 years or more. Now, with the world awake to the quality and beauty of nebbiolo from Piedmonte, the wines have steadily increased in price but can still represent excellent value compared to their peers.
The 2014 Barbaresco is fabulous. Lifted in the glass, with striking perfume and captivating translucency, the Produttori's Barbaresco captures all the elements that make this vintage so compelling. Today, the 2014 is very, very young. What stands out most is its textural finesse and balance. It will be a number of years before the aromas and flavors are fully expressive. The only thing that might come as a surprise is the touch of new cask in this wine. Otherwise, the 2014 is one of the finest editions of the straight Barbaresco I can remember tasting, not to mention a superb example of how magnificent this vintage is in Barbaresco. Don't miss it.
