Produttori del Barbaressco, Barbaresco 2017
This is THEE wine that has made the Produttori what it is today. This cooperative started in the sixties to take care of the best growers who didn't want to make Barbaresco. In 1967 they started producing single-vineyard wines from the village, and today they are known as a great winery, not just a village co-op. 2017 is a combination of layered fruit, fragrance, and structure. This is like a mix of what all the village has to offer and pleases from the get-go. I have had forty-year-old bottles of the Village Barbaresco, and it is just as well old as it is young. This is a beauty for the table right now...and later!
