PRODUTTORI 2012 LANGHE NEBBIOLO

Today the village of Barbaresco is one of the most famous wine towns in the world, but when the Produttori del Barbaresco was established in 1894, all of the grapes from Barbaresco were shipped down the road to nearby Barolo and bottled under that name-the nine landowners who formed Produttori del Barbaresco were the first to bottle Barbaresco wine. In April we did a special tasting at our Wine Bar with Produttori that included all 9 single vineyard wines-the quality of the line was off the charts, but the wine that really stuck with us with this humbler Nebbiolo bottling. Unlike many of their neighbors, Produttori's Nebbiolo bottling is not a blend from outside the zone, but is used to declassify the fruit from younger Barbaresco vines. Nebbiolo may be the most demanding grape to farm and it's tricky to find entry-level price wines, but the Produttori Nebbiolo shows a mix of rose petal prettiness and bright Rainier cherry fruit that is pleasing and true-a staff favorite that we had to include in our best of the year.
