Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Torre 1978

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sweet and nutty on the nose with a bit of walnut liquor, orange peel and old leather ast first but gaining nice notes of menthol, lightly candied licorice, rosewater, and jammy black currants with time. Has a bit of a press wine smell. Fresh and crisp in the mouth with great focus, the tannins are brisk and the flavors tend to the dark side with mineral, briar pipe though a touch of menthol keeps it fresh. The fruit is red and fairly sweet with the powerful tannins adding a drying note and cutting the finish a touch short though this is fresh and lovely 89 pts

Founded in 1958, the priest of the village of Barbaresco, recognizing that the only way small properties could survive was by joining their efforts, gathered together nineteen small growers and founded the Produttori del Barbaresco. From its humble beginnings making the first three vintages in the church basement, Produttori del Barbaresco has grown to a 52 member co-operative with 250 acres of Nebbiolo vineyards in the Barbaresco appellation and an annual production of over 500,000 bottles. Its vineyards amount to almost 1/6 of the vineyards of the area. Each member is in full control of their land, growing Nebbiolo grapes with the skill and dedication they have honed over generations. Playing a key role in elevating the quality level of Barbaresco over the years, Produttori del Barbaresco produces a simpler Nebbiolo Langhe, a Barbaresco blend and nine single vineyard wines produces in premier vineyards: Asili, Rabajà, Pora, Montestefano, Ovello, Pajè, Montefico, Muncagota and Rio Sordo.
