Perhaps the world's most celebrated wine co-operative the Produttori Del Barbaresco, founded in 1956 is today considered one of the most consistent and top quality producers in the region. Now some 56 grower contribute with a very wide array of vineyard holdings. That allows this blend to give full expression to the Nebbiolo grapes grown in this celebrated region. Slow, extended maceration for 24 days followed by two years in traditional large oak casks. Antonio Galloni scored this 90 points saying "The 2013 is a tasty, easygoing Barbaresco to drink over the next decade or more. There is good depth in the glass, with pretty notes of tobacco, licorice, herb and worn-in leather that add nuance. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate and a closing burst of acidity meld into the finish. The tannins are present, but they are also pretty much buried by the creaminess of the fruit. A lovely impeccably balanced, understated wine that offers considerable regional and varietal expression. In other words: textbook. The Produttori's Barbaresco has a track record of aging well, but the 2013 is also surprisingly accessible. It should drink well with minimal cellaring."
