2017 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo, Produttori del Barbaresco

£79.75 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 Rio Sordo.

“The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo is a serious, somber wine. Black cherry, plum, lavender, spice and menthol show off the darker side of Nebbiolo to great effect. In most vintages, Rio Sordo is an easygoing wine, but not in 2016. Readers will find a potent, brooding yet mid-weight Barbaresco that screams with character. What a way to start this tasting!” 96 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

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