The nose reveals; sweet & sour dark cherries, deeply, ripe & juicy strawberries, rhubarb & cranberry crossing, plum liqueur, blackberries, blueberries, candied raspberries, dark chocolate, limestone minerals, sandstone, anise to black licorice, dry, crushed rocks with blue, red, dark, fresh & withering florals with fields of violets.

The body is still firm, thick, grainy and full. The structure, tension are still tight. The length and balance are working their way into adolescence. Sweet & sour dark cherries, deeply, ripe & juicy strawberries, black raspberries, juicy, black plum, rhubarb & cranberry crossing, plum liqueur, blackberries, blueberries, candied raspberries, caramel, clove, touch of nutmeg, vanilla, dark chocolate, semi-sweet tarriness, understated herbaceousiness, limestone minerals, powdery sandstone leather, dry tobacco, saddle-wood to cedar plank, dark spice, sandstone, anise to black licorice, dry, crushed rocks with blue, red, dark, fresh & withering florals with fields of violets.

It’s still a youthful wine with another 10-15 years ahead.

Photos of; the hilltop town of Barbaresco with the Produttori tasting room underneath and right of the tower, the Produttori tasting room and the co-op of Produttori. Third largest in Europe.

So classic, well made and great QPR. Tasted blinded and called it Produttori right away.

Like 2006, no Riserva/Cru bottlings will be released for 2012. This is powerful & tannic, yet approachable & generous with herb accented dark red fruit. As always, the Barbaresco standard bearer.

This afternoon a close friend and I enjoyed reminiscing and enjoying wine together. It was a wonderful afternoon and wonderful wine.

Our first wine was the 2012 Produttori del Barbaresco which we throughly enjoyed.

On the nose were notes of cherry, red raspberry, anise, cranberry, herbaceous notes and a bit of leather.

On the palate was very pronounced tart black cherries, red raspberry, clove, licorice and clay soil.

There is medium + acidity and gripping + tannins that leads to a pleasingly long finish.

This was a enjoyable wine that is drinking well now but can be cellared for another 5-10 years easily.

Continue to enjoy the weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Consistently excellent, dried cherries, rose petals, tobacco. Sustains nicely. The 2012 was made in a year without Reservas so it benefitted from all the best fruit. A cracker.
