Nebbiolo drinkers are a finicky bunch – I'm one of 'em. Nebbiolo and Piedmont 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 Produttori del Barbaresco. From this offer's Langhe Nebbiolo to their "basic" Barbaresco – actually blended from several of their top sites in the DOCG zone – right up the line to the single Cru Riserva bottlings of Asili, Rabaja, Ovello, Montestefano, Rio Sordo, Montefico, Muncagato. Pora and Paja. Everything made here is first rate while being truly consumer friendly at the register, especially this serious Nebbiolo bargain. 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 it is his wines that will do the talking. And this truly affordable Nebbiolo is speaking beautifully! A classy, classic expression of Nebbiolo.


As a palate teaser before this lovely flight of Riservas from Produttori del Barbaresco, I am delighted to start off with the delicate and fine 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo. Showing a light ruby color, this wine takes baby steps with hints of wild rose, dried blueberry, crushed limestone and powdered licorice. It sports a fragile, fine texture. If you crave for a basic and absolutely satisfying taste of pure Nebbiolo, look no further.

Rose and wild berry aromas lead the way, while the palate offers ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and a hint of iron. It's full bodied but accessible, thanks to pliant tannins and fresh acidity.
