Lot #223. Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco 2010

Description: Consists of 5 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 93+ WA.
"The 2010 Barabresco opens to beautiful aromas of forest floor, white truffle and cola. All the fruit from Produttori del Barbaresco's single-vineyard wines are packed into this one base Barbaresco. The wine is sharp and focused and, although it does not have the soft generosity of 2009 or 2011, this is a wine of enormous elegance . . . . I noted the persistence, freshness and liveliness of the finish . . . . Produttori del Barbaresco always offers one of the most exciting tastings of the year. This cooperative winery decided not to make single-vineyard expressions in 2010 and all the fruit went into the base 2010 Barbaresco instead. Managing Director Aldo Vacca tells me that the estate philosophy is to produce all nine vineyard expressions, or none at all. In fact, the 2002, 2003 and 2006 vintages were skipped over . . . . In general, Produttori del Barbaresco’s vineyard wines represent only 30 percent of the entire production, although some 70 percent of the cooperative’s vineyard holdings are located in single-vineyard cru designations."
