Produttori del Barbaresco DOCG
Barbaresco DOCG is produced every year from the 100 hectares of vineyards controlled by the Co-operative Produttori within the appellation, mainly in the Barbaresco village itself. In the best vintages, when the quality of the grapes is great everywhere, the historical crus are vinified separately and Barbaresco is then produced with the grapes from the remaining vineyards. In normal vintages, the crus are not produced and their grapes go in the Barbaresco blend, therefore enhancing the quality of the final wine. Thanks to the variety of vineyards, every year Barbaresco from the “Produttori” is the truest expression of the vintage with great harmony and balance.
The wine spends a total of 28 days macerating on its skins whilst being pumped over 2-3 times a day, before going through malolactic fermentation. The Barbaresco is matured for 24 months in traditional oak botti before bottling and release.
A ruby red with powerful aromas of concentrated and ripe red and black fruits. The fruit aroma reaches a wonderful depth and is complemented by herbal and medicinal hints. The palate is beautiful; silky, rounded and textured with red and black fruits, perfume and liquorice notes. The tannins are ripe and firm with a balancing acidity and lingering notes of dried cherries.
