2016 Produttori del Barbaresco Reserva 'Don Fiorino'
Produttori del Barbaresco in Piemonte is widely regarded as one of the greatest wine cooperatives in the world. There are over 50 member growers with a combined total of around 100 hectares of vineyards.
Don Fiorono is very special release to highlight an exceptional vintage in which Produttori del Barbaresco decided to make a new expression from their historical cru vineyards. Named in homage to Don Fiorno, the priest who founded the winery in 1958, this is the first Riserva of its kind to be released by the cooperative in decades.
A blend of Nebbiolo grapes from Produttori's nine famous cru single vineyards in Barbaresco. After fermentation and 30 days of skin maceration, it aged for thirty months in large French oak casks.
This is a fabulously complex wine with notes of local white truffle, earth, citrus peel and pure fruit. Medium bodied with silky tannins, elegance and power on the finish. It’s gorgeous, with serious aging potential.
