With no single vineyards produced in 2018, the straight Barbaresco is Produttori's top cuvée of the vintage. The 2018 Barbaresco from Produttori is ruby red and offers a pristine nose with red cherry, cloves, blood orange, earthy terracotta and dried herbs – delivering classic Barbaresco elegance that combines delicate floral aromatics with deeper, earthier tones and superb fruit purity. On the palate, chewy and crunchy red fruit pairs with citric acidity surrounded by creamy, sweet tannins and layers of complexity through rosehip and bergamot tea flavours. With air, the finish becomes more pronounced with sweet red liquorice lingering on the palate. While certainly a lighter style at this stage, with sinewy structure and a graceful, light body, this promises to take on more fat with some time in bottle as there is plenty of depth and concentration, stunning complexity and excellent freshness.
