Produttori del Barbaresco
Prior to 1894, Nebbiolo grapes were sold to make Barolo wine or simply labeled "Nebbiolo di Barbaresco". But in 1894, Domizio Cavazza, headmaster of the Royal Enological School of Alba and a Barbaresco resident, created the first cooperative, the "Cantine Sociali", by gathering together nine Barbaresco vineyard owners to make wine in the local castle that he owned. The winery produces a Barbaresco D.O.C.G., a blend of Nebbiolo grapes harvested from different vineyards, and a simpler Nebbiolo Langhe suited for earlier consumption. In great vintages, nine single-vineyard Barbarescos are produced from nine classic premium sites within the Barbaresco village boundaries: Asili, Rabajà, Pora, Montestefano, Ovello, Pajé, Montefico, Moccagatta and Rio Sordo.
Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco 2008
Barbaresco DOCG is produced every year from the 100 hectares of vineyards controlled by the Produttori within the appellation, mainly in the Barbaresco village itself. In the best vintages, when the quality of the grapes is great everywhere, the historical crus are vinified separately and Barbaresco is then produced with the grapes from the remaining vineyards.
In normal vintages, the crus are not produced and their grapes go in the Barbaresco blend, therefore enhancing the quality of the final wine.
Thanks to the variety of vineyards, every year Barbaresco from the "Produttori" is the truest expression of the vintage with great harmony and balanced. Scent of spices, pepper and black cherries. Powerful, firm, elegant and ethereal
Pairings: Pairs well with egg pastas, risottos, white meats, poultry, red meats, game, venison and aged cheese
