Nebbiolo drinkers are a finicky bunch – I'm one of 'em. Nebbiolo and Piedmonte belong together. And as long as I've known that, I've also known that there's a comfortable consistency to the wonderful, warm and soul-satisfying wines being bottled by the Produttori del Barbaresco. From their "basic" Barbaresco – actually blended from several of their top sites in the DOCG zone – right up the line to the single Crus, everything made here is first rate while being truly consumer friendly at the register. I've known Director Aldo Vacca for more than a decade and to taste with him is infectious. But make no mistake; it's ultimately his it is the wines which do the talking. And this truly affordable, true Nebbiolo is speaking beautifully! A classy, classic expression of Barbaresco.

The 2016 Barbaresco is a tight and beautiful wine that will require more time to unwind and soften. This beautifully balanced vintage is characterized by a tight inner core of fruit that underlines the graceful aging capacity of these wines. The 2016 is shaping up to be one destined for long cellar aging. Now in its youth, the wine offers wild berry, rose and licorice aromas.
