Made from 100% Nebbiolo, this is a truly excellent Barbaresco at a surprisingly accessible price. Produttori del Barbaresco impresses year after year, crafting wines of structure, depth, and undeniable elegance. This bottling boasts aromas of ripe black cherry, wild strawberry, violet, and rose petal, while the medium-bodied yet full-flavored palate displays notes of dark fruit, baking spice, and fresh herbs. Ample tannic structure makes this wine both satisfying and age-worthy.
“A pretty red, boasting floral, strawberry, and raspberry flavors, accented by tobacco and underbrush notes. The tannins are firm yet well-integrated, creating a balanced impression. Best from 2017 to 2027.” - Wine Spectator
"A big, powerful wine, the 2012 Barbaresco hits the palate with surprising depth allied to nervous tannins that are going to need time to soften. Tobacco, smoke, licorice, menthol, game and a host of dark, ferrous notes give the wine much of its virile personality. The 2012 is not as finessed as some recent vintages, yet it offers considerable potential for the future. Most importantly, it is a terrific value at a time when well-priced Barbaresco is increasingly hard to find. In 2012, the Produttori did not bottle their Riservas. When that happens, the straight Barbaresco is often an overachiever. That is certainly the case here, as the 2012 offers outstanding quality for the money, with plenty of potential for the future. I can’t think of too many wines that deliver this much pleasure and value." - Vinous Media
