"No season is complete for me without nebbiolo, and among moderately priced bottles few do it as well as Produttori del Barbaresco, one of the world’s greatest wine cooperatives. The 2012 is tannic, of course, but not aggressively so, with flavors of dark fruit and flowers, a suggestion of tar and bright citrus highlights. It’s delicious, but do serve it with food." - 'Summer's Winners: 20 Wines for $20', Eric Asimov, New York Times (5/19/14)
"Produced from young vineyards, this Nebbiolo has a young, fresh character that is ready for immediate consumption and is ideal for everyday drinking. While labeled under the Langhe DOC appellation, this wine follows all the guidelines and achieves a quality level on par with the Barbaresco denomination. The first vintage of this wine was produced in 1978. Color: Ruby red. Bouquet: Red fruit with notes of spices, white pepper and anise. Flavor: Balanced with bright fruit. Pairings: Pairs well with pizza, pastas with simple sauces, sausage, ham, charcuterie and spicy dish." -Importer
