Produttori del Barbaresco
This super co-op manages around a sixth (100 ha) of Barbaresco’s relatively tiny vineyard area. It is democratically run and winemaker Gianni Testa adheres to traditional lines with lengthy maceration and ageing in large botti. But what perfume, grace and charm they achieve in the top crus in a good vintage! These wines are a purist’s delight, capturing much of the essence of Nebbiolo and a splendid expression of the grape in some of the most hallowed patches of soil in Barbaresco. What’s more, the single-vineyard Riservas sell for less than many other producers’ regular Barbaresco. All will keep for, and sometimes need, a decade or more.
