To be released in September, the 2014 Barbaresco is a beautiful wine that encompasses the important qualities that we look for in fine Nebbiolo. Ultimately, this is the kind of vintage that transfers best to the delicate grape. It saw a long growing season (Nebbiolo loves a late harvest) and steep diurnal temperature shifts to lock in the freshness of aromas. The mouthfeel is a bit thinner in texture, but it delivers plenty of beautiful length and endurance instead. It offers crisp tones of cherry fruit with licorice, wet earth and blue flowers. The line of Barbaresco Riserva wines from the various single vineyards will be made in 2014 (and will be released in early 2018).

The only new wines ready for review during my visit to Produttori del Barbaresco this spring were the 2014 Barbaresco and the 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo. The 2014 Barbaresco will hit the market in September and is being released a bit earlier, because the 2013 Barbaresco is already sold out. Like the other important voices from the area, general manager Aldo Vacca sings high praises for the 2014 vintage. In addition to the wine reviewed below, this important cooperative will be making its single-vineyard Riserva wines in 2014. These include the nine expressions from Asili, Ovello, Rio Sordo, Montefico, Rabajà, Pora, Montestefano, Pajè and Muncagota. Because these wines are made as Riservas, they are released one year later. In this case, we can expect the series of 2014 Barbaresco Riservas to hit the market next year. The 2014 vintage did see passing summer storms in Barbaresco, but they were dispersed and not as severe as elsewhere—Aldo Vacca tells me: "The grapes had ample time to recuperate because this was a very late harvest." Fruit came off the vines at the end of October and therefore enjoyed a full two months (September and October) to come to maturity. The selection of cru Riserva wines was made in 2013 and these wines were just going into bottle during my visit. These will start hitting the market at the beginning of 2018. No cru Riservas were made in 2012, because there was a lot of humidity in the summer air and September was scorching hot, forcing an early harvest. That means the line of nine Riserva wines will be made in 2013, 2014, 2015 and definitely 2016. This will be the first time since the founding of the winery in 1958 that four vintages in a row meet the high Riserva standards. Jun 2017, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2018-2030
A full expressive nose with layers of quince, white flowers, luscious honeyed stone fruit. Intensely rich and generous on the palate underpinned by a saline minerality and vibrant acidity, highlighting fresh notes of pink grapefruit and peach, which carries it through to a persistent mineral finish. Very impressive quality for this often overlooked appellation. OCt 2017, www.vinous.com, Drink: 2022-2042
