2017 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello, Produttori del Barbaresco

Original price was: £85.00.Current price is: £69.75. inc. VAT

Here’s a chance to own a bottle of one of the greatest wines from arguably the greatest vintage ever in Barbaresco.

The Produttori del Barbaresco was founded in 1958 by the priest of the village who recognised that the only way for small grape growing properties to survive was to combine their efforts. The first three vintages were produced in the church basement and then in the winery built in the village square where they are still located today. The Produttori co-operative now has 51 members that own around 100 hectares of vineyards in some of the finest sites in Barbaresco and is recognised to have the highest standards of any co-operative in the world. 

In the best vintages they release single vineyard (Cru) Rieservas and there has been no better vintage in recent years (possibly ever) than 2016. Here’s Antonio Galloni’s review of the Ovello.

“The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello is the most severe and angular of these wines. It will appeal most to die-hard classicists. Chalk, white pepper, mint and sweet red cherry fruit all grace this chiseled, beautifully translucent Barbaresco. As always, the Ovello needs a number of years in bottle to reveal its charms, which in 2016 are many. It is a positively stellar wine in every way.” 97+ points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

There is one bottle only available of this stunning wine, snap it up before it’s too late!
