2013 Produttori del Barbaresco ‘Shaping up to be a classic’ AG

The 2013 vintage is shaping up to be a classic. Many vintners are already comparing it to 2010.” Monica Larner

Produttori del Barbaresco

We are very pleased to re-offer Produttori del Barbaresco’s latest release – the 2013 Barbaresco ‘normale’ – As loyal followers of the Produttori’s wines we were, as always hugely excited about the 2013 – A year described by Galloni  as “an epic vintage of classic proportions and superb pedigree”.

We ran an initial offer last year before Antonio Galloni has published his actual note/scores: Now due to a delay in bottling at the Produttori we have been given another chance to offer this exceptional value wine. A very finely etched wine, with bright fruit and a defined purity on the palate: Once you have had a bottle we have no doubt you will be wishing you had bought more… at sub £22 all in this really is ideal for family meals, social gatherings, special occasions or as a delightful everyday ‘house wine’ – Many people here in the Bancroft office have been overheard  mentioning ‘taking rolling stock’ of the 2013 to be enjoyed for many years to come.

2013 Barbaresco, Produttori del Barbaresco
The 2013 is a tasty, easygoing Barbaresco to drink over the next decade or more. There is good depth in the glass, with pretty notes of tobacco, licorice, herb and worn-in leather that add nuance. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate and a closing burst of acidity meld into the finish. The tannins are present, but they are also pretty much buried by the creaminess of the fruit. A lovely impeccably balanced, understated wine that offers considerable regional and varietal expression. In other words: textbook. The Produttori’s Barbaresco has a track record of aging well, but the 2013 is also surprisingly accessible. It should drink well with minimal cellaring – Drink 2018-2033″  93 points, Antonio Galloni – vinous.com
