Barbaresco Produttori del Barbaresco 2018

Always one of the buys of the year, we are delighted to release Produttori del Barbaresco's 2018 Barbaresco at £138/6 IB. The price is one of the most compelling from this region for the quality this illustrious estate consistently delivers. Wine maker Aldo Vacca explained he made no single vineyard Crus in 2018. A hailstorm hit a key part of the Barbaresco appellation in July, so this village Barbaresco contains all their top single vineyard fruit.

    No single vineyards Crus made this year due to a bad hailstorm on the 15th July, in particular in the Ovello, Montestefano, Montefico vineyard sites. Putting your nose to the glass it’s shy at first, then slowly unfurls with seductive flavours and alluring aromatics. Smouldering darker fruits, plum, dark Griotte cherry, but with time in the glass hints of pretty red fruits and floral notes appear. Peonies, rose, wild strawberry and dark red cherry are wound into a fine structure atop the dark plum and savoury notes of forest floor and subtle warm spices. This certainly has concentration and power in the glass. Lots of complexity and broader shoulders than normal coming from the additional single Crus that have gone into this blend, but still everything is perfectly balanced and in harmony. Lovely freshness on the palate and a really wonderful body and texture with lots of fine tannins which are ripe and juicy. It’s as seductive as ever and utterly delicious. Highly recommended.

    The 2018 Barbaresco is an attractive, open-knit wine to drink now and over the next 10-15 years, maybe more. In 2018 the Produttori did not bottle their Riservas. Instead, all of the best lots of those grapes went into the straight Barbaresco bottling, another in a long string of successes from this historic house. Dark cherry, cedar, tobacco and spice fill out the layers. There is good depth and a good deal of tannin too, just not the complexity or nuance of the very best years. Drink 2023 - 2033
