Produttori del Barbaresco RISERVA

2014 Produttori Riserva Barbaresco
Sadly while the quality of the wines continues to rise so does their profile and popularity. We only received a fraction of what we ordered but are happy to offer a couple of selections at a great price.

2014 Produttori del Barbaresco Riserva Ovello...$59.98
The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello is bright and piercing, as it so often is, and yet it also has more than enough fruit to fill out its mid-weight, energetic frame. Pine, mint, crushed rocks and sweet red plum build into the huge, piercing finish. The Ovello is another wine in this range that demands patience. Even in the early going it is super impressive. The 2014 s an unusually dense, packed Ovello. It should be terrific in another few years' time.

2014 Produttori del Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano...$59.98
One of the many highlights in this range, the Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano is superb. A big enrobing wine, the Montestefano wraps around the palate with stunning depth. Today, the Montestefano is utterly embryonic, and yet it exudes depth, resonance and pure class. The Montestefano is one of the more complete wines in the range because of the way it deftly balances fruit intensity and structure. Readers will have to be patient, though.
