2007 Produttori del Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo

#1 Post by Blake Brown »

Another wine worthy of sharing some notes:

2007 PRODUTTORI del BARBARESCO RISERVA RIO SORDO BARBARESCO- this is made by a cooperative consisting of 56 growers in Barbaresco founded in 1958; they released their first Riservas in 1967; the 2007 Riservas saw 4 or more weeks on the skins and spent a total of 3 years in oak while being racked and aged in varying sizes of barrels over that time; this is my 3rd bottle of this wondrous Nebbiolo and all have been really good, albeit early on in their life span so a long decant is more prudent although I only went an hour for this one; the color is a pure dark purple; the aromatics are so inviting with spicy, wild blackberry, black raspberry, black currant and black cherry, all of which continue on to be joined by a nice touch of blueberry and an accent of dark chocolate; the staunch underlying tannins experienced toward the back end provide a backbone that ensures longevity and are a few years away from being fully integrated; there`s so much to like about this wine now with its layered depth and complexity, subtle power and eventual finesse and its wild dark fruit profile.

Cheers,
Blake
