Event Description

At Produttori del Barbaresco a quiet transformation has taken place in recent years that is nothing short of remarkable. Far from a sleepy, old-fashioned cooperative winery, the Produttori have stepped up their game big time over the last decade or so. The new winery is decked out with gleaming fermentation tanks, while old, large casks have been put out to pasture, replaced by medium size casks that are far more practical. The wines remain reference-points, though, especially in years in which the Produttori make their flagship Riservas. Longtime Managing Director Aldo Vacca describes 2011 is an outlier, as it is a warm vintage, yet the wines have retained much of their personalities because evening temperatures moderated in the weeks leading up to harvest, which allowed each of the vineyards to develop their signatures. The Produttori's Riservas remain some of the greatest values in the realm of fine, cellar worthy reds.
