2017 Produttori del Barbaresco
Barbaresco is one of the most prominent wines in the Piedmont region. Since the 13th century, the cultivation of the Nebbiolo grape has largely defined the winemaking culture of the region.
Nebbiolo is a slowly maturing grape which makes it easily susceptible to changes in differing soils and climates. As a result of the subtleties of the microclimates in Barbaresco, the wines take on a fascinating range of spice and fruit flavors.
Barbaresco is much smaller than the Barolo region, yet it ben- efits from the influence of the Tanaro river allowing for grapes that ripen earlier and maintain an overall lighter character.
Intense nose of spices, pepper and black cherries. Powerful, firm, elegant sip with ethereal flavor.

The 2017 Barbaresco, sourced from 100 hectares and 54 growers, was aged for 24 months in large oak casks. It offers layers of aromatics woven together with tar, forested earth, dried cherry, and sweet tobacco. The palate is ripe and pure, with raspberry leather, tea leaf, and blood orange. It is mouth-filling, with fruit that is long and persistent, fine tannins, and a lifted finish. Finessed and elegant, the 2017 is drinking beautifully now and will continue to drink well over the next 15 years. 2021-2036.

The 2017 Barbaresco shows just how appealing this vintage can be. In 2017, the warm, dry growing season gave the Barbaresco an extra kick of richness that fills out its frame and adds so much immediacy. Sweet red berry fruit, cinnamon, rose petal and mint are open in the glass, but it is the wine’s seductive radiance that wins the day. Pora, Ovello, Montestefano, Muncagota and Rio Sordo are the main vineyards used for the straight Barbaresco. The 2017 is such an inviting and expressive wine. Don’t miss it!
