HISTORY OF PRODUTTORI DEL BARBARESCO

 

This co-op and one of the best producers of Barbaresco, buys grapes from its 51 farmers with vineyards in the best sites in the village! The history dates back to the end of the 19th century when Domizio Cavazza, then head of the oenological school in Alba, founded the co-op by bottling the first wines in his castle and labeling them Barbaresco. Unfortunately the co-op was shut down during the wars and fascist period and re-established itself again in 1958. Today the winery produces about 550,000 bottles of barbaresco ( a small number compared to most co-ops) and is considered one of the best in the world. When PDB has an exceptionally great vintage (which is happening more and more often), they release 9 single cru Barbaresco.

WHY YOU SHOULD BUY THIS CASE 

This is a rare opportunity to have the whole series of all 9 crus of Barbaresco Riservas from one of the greatest vintages of all-time with an average critic score of approx. 95 points! Also there is no better way to understand the characteristics of the grand crus of Barbaresco than by taking a coravin and tasting the crus side by side.

2013 is a “collector’s vintage”, an epic vintage some would say. Some compare it to the 2010, with a late harvest and considered a classic expression of a more austere Barbaresco! All of these wines would be better to hold in your cellar for the long haul but a few of the crus are more ready than others. 

MORE INFO ABOUT THE SINGLE CRU RISERVAS

ASILI  – Grand cru of Barbaresco which forms a type of bowl shaped vineyard known for wines with quintessential finesse. Lifted floral nose with seductive tannins which at the moment are silky and balanced. DRINK OR HOLD 97 pts Antonio Galloni

MONTEFICO – All about the minerality! An energetic wine with slightly angular tannins with floral and deep juicy fruit flavors. Nebbiolo here ripens slowly with nice fruit and integrated tannins. HOLD 96.5 pts Antonio Galloni

MONTESTEFANO – The “Barolo” of Barbaresco comes from steep slopes with soils high in calcium giving you power, structure and dark and smokier notes compared to other lighter fruit characteristics. Tannins at the moment are very overpowering. May be the cru you should hold the longest! HOLD 95 pts. Antonio Galloni

MUNCAGOTA – Part of the Eastern less fertile soils with more calcium and clay giving more structure. Floral notes with and red fruit, spice and mint. This will be one of the first “crus” to open up. DRINK EARLIER THAN OTHERS 94 pts Antonio Galloni

OVELLO – One of the first single cru Barbarescos labeled from PDB which tends to exhibit strong tannins, medium body and lots of fruit. Intense aromatics and power on the palate “Vivid, sculpted, and impressively beautiful, the Ovello is simply magnificent” HOLD 96 pts. Antonio Galloni

PAJE’ – The lowest altitude vineyard cru, closest to the river, is usually one of the first to be approachable. In fact, with its beautiful harmony, 2013 is one of the best vintages this cru has ever seen! DRINK EARLIER THAN OTHERS 96 pts. Antonio Galloni

PORA – On the southern side of the Barbaresco town, soils have a bit less calcium making them lighter and aromatic with delicate tannins. It is one of the crus closest to the river with slightly more fertile and less steep vineyards. This gives it very fruity aromas and makes it easier to drink young. Usually this cru can be considered “light” but in such a tannic vintage, this is showing beautiful layers and structure. HOLD 94 pts. Antonio Galloni

RABAJA’ – Grand cru of Barbaresco where the two ridges meet giving it a certain balance. It is usually a very representative style of Barbaresco with persistent tannins and high acid, elegant yet powerful with classic notes of roses and tar. “A host of dark blue fruits, lavender, mint, violet and spice race across the palate in an utterly vivid, compelling Barbaresco of the highest level. DRINK OR HOLD  96 pts. Antonio Galloni

RIO SORDO – On the sounthern side of Barbaresco town, similar to Pora, limestone soils with sandy veins give lighter aromatic wines easier to drink young. A beautiful gracious wine with medium body, cherries, plum and tobacco. DRINK BEFORE OTHERS 93 Antonio Galloni
