Produttori del Barbaresco

 

A table of all the Barbarescos made by Produttori del Barbaresco.

N = Non-Reserve, R = Reserve ("Riserva" in Italian), X = None Made, * = something distinctive or qualified about that wine (click on link for more info). Before 1980, the riserva was officially called "Riserva Speciale".

Please see the notes at the bottom of the page which include some additional wines and labels, as well as more background and history of the winery.

If you have a photo of wine that I do not, or you have a better photo than the one here, and you would like to contribute your photo, please email it to me (kenvastola "at" gmail). For these Produttori wines, I am also quite interested in obtaining photos of the back labels, so even if I have the front label, I would appreciate a photo of the back label.

Produttori makes a basic Langhe Nebbiolo and a basic Barbaresco in almost every vintage. In good vintages, they make single-vineyard Cru wines, usually as Riserva. Their general policy is to make all the single-vineyard wines or none of them in a given vintage.

Starting with the 1982 vintage, there are nine such Cru wines. The nine Crus (i.e. special single vineyards) that are bottled by the Produttori are: Asili, Moccagatta, Montefico, Montestefano, Ovello, Pajé, Pora, Rabajà, Rio Sordo.

Here is a photo of all 9 Cru Riservas from 2005. Here is a photo of all 9 Cru Riservas from 2008.

2009 single-vineyard crus have been bottled (Spring 2013). 2010 cru riservas will not be bottled separately. At this point, the intent is to bottle 2011 and 2012 cru riservas.

History and Notes

Below are some notes on the wines bottled by the winery with an emphasis on special or unusual bottling. We first give a brief history of the winery. Some additional information can be found on the winery website. Also, an in-depth article by John Gilman in his View From the Cellar entitled The Produttori del Barbaresco: The Wine World's Most Amazing Cooperative (Jul/Aug 2009, Issue #22) is very informative and is reproduced here with permission. Here also is a nice video from In-Wine which gives a basic introduction to Barbaresco and the Produttori. (The second half of this video shows a tasting of the 2007 Barbaresco.)

Quantities
