PRODUTTORI BARBARESCO LANGHE NEBBIOLO 19
This Langhe Nebbiolo represents what we think is outstanding value for money. It comes from one of the highest quality and most historically significant producers in the small Barbaresco DOCG in Piemonte, namely Produttori del Barbaresco, which was founded in 1958 and now has 51 members who collectively own approximately 100 hectares of the entire appellation (itself nearly 700 hectares).
This wine is 100% Nebbiolo grown on various vineyards in within the appellation and fermented in concrete tanks at 28°C with 20 days on the skins, pumping over twice a day and five months in large oak barrels. It's a shorter and slightly cooler fermentation than the single vineyard wines receive which results in a smoother, softer, more approachable wine in its youth. It drinks well now and can age for up to five years.
While this is released under the general appellation Langhe, it follows Produttori's rule of over-delivering on quality. Just as their Barberesco is a second selection from top single vineyards, so this regional Lange is mostly from declassified Barbaresco.
