(From 2005 Vintage) "Once again, the Produttori have turned out a gem in their 2005 Barbaresco. A beautiful, perfumed Nebbiolo, the wine flows effortlessly from the glass with captivating notes of crushed flowers, raspberries, sweet herbs and spices. This classic, mid-weight Barbaresco possesses plenty of clean, bright fruit framed by elegant tannins, showing notable harmony. Simply put, this is a classic wine Piedmont lovers wont want to miss. Ideally, the wine should be cellared for a few years, but readers will have a hard time exercising such patience." - Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate Cheese read more...Pairings: Fontina, Gouda, CheddarFood Pairings: Braised Beef, Truffles and Truffle Oil (hide)

Wine & Spirits(From 2005 Vintage) Produttori del Barbaresco continues to be a terrific source for well-priced wines. It will be a few years before the 2004 Riservas are released. In the meantime, readers will find the Barbaresco normale on store shelves. Incidentally, I have already gone through several bottles of the 2003 Barbaresco, a wine which offers much promise and half a case of the 2001 Barbaresco Riserva Rabaja. Every bottle of the Rabaja has been a stunner. The estatersquo;s 2004 Barbaresco is very sweet and pretty, with spiced, floral aromas that are delicately woven into a fabric of ripe fruit. With air herbal and balsamic overtones emerge, adding further complexity. The wine offers outstanding length, silky tannins and a fresh, inviting finish. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2016.
