92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This bright red exhibits floral, cherry and tar flavors, with a firm edge of tannins closing the wine down on the finish. An elegant Barbaresco that should fall into place in a few years. (BS) Inner quote mark (11/2012)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Produttori’s 2008 Barbaresco is simply fabulous. A sweet bouquet melds into expressive fruit in a Barbaresco that is exceptionally polished and refined. The 2008 boasts striking sweetness and inner perfume to match its understated, elegant personality. Quite frankly, the 2008 is very hard to resist today, as the tannins are quite polished. Unusually sweet, silky and refined, the 2008 will take the better part of a decade to show the full breadth of its pedigree. At $37, it is one of the very finest values in ageworthy wine from anywhere in the world. This is a magnificent showing from the Produttori and a great introduction to the 2008 harvest at this historic house. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. (AG) 91+ Inner quote mark (10/2012)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This vibrant Barbaresco opens with loads of oak-inspired aromas and sweet spice with background tones of forest fruit, bramble, tar, cedar and licorice. The tannins are drying, firm and fuel the wine’s long finish. Inner quote mark (9/2011)

K&L Notes

Produttori del Barbaresco is a cooperative of 56 growers in Barbaresco. Its roots go back to 1958, when small growers joined the priest of Barbaresco village to ensure the quality and uniqueness of their production. Each family still maintains their small vineyard holdings. Most years, the cooperative makes blends, but in great years there can be one or more of nine single-vineyard bottlings produced. These wines will always have their vineyards and growers noted and are quite special.
