"The Produttori will be bottling their 2011 Riservas later this year. In the meantime, readers will find much to enjoy in the 2011 Barbaresco. Vintages 2010 and 2011 provide a great opportunity for exploring the differences between Barolo and Barbaresco. Because vineyards in Barbaresco ripen a good 7-10 earlier than the most precocious sites in Barolo, the late season rains in 2010 were much more problematic in Barbaresco than they were in Barolo, as they came close to harvest time. By contrast, in 2011, the late season heat spike gave the fruit in Barbaresco an extra kick of fleshiness without distorting the wines." Antonio Galloni (Vinous Media)

"The Produttori del Barbaresco's 2011 Barbaresco presents an intriguing combination of the expressive, resonant fruit typical of the vintage wedded to a firm sense of tannin. Rose petal, mint, cherry pit and chalk notes open up on the expressive bouquet and mid-palate before classic Nebbiolo tannins make their presence felt. The flavors are already a touch forward, which suggests the 2011 won't be one of the more longer-lived vintages here, but that is of course in relative terms for a house where the wines typically deliver fine drinking for several decades." 90 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous Media)
