2004 Barbaresco DOCG 750ml

Description

Barbaresco DOCG is produced every year from the 100 hectares of vineyards controlled by the Produttori within the appellation, mainly in the Barbaresco village itself.

In the best vintages, the historical crus are vinified separately. Ovello is the northernmost vineyard in the village of Barbaresco. Rich, clay soil and a cooler microclimate give Ovello its exuberant and youthful quality in the fruit and its fuller body, which defines its distinctive personality.

Explosive fruit on the palate and firm, sometime rough, tannins on the finish, these wines always bring a lot of joy to the palate and deliver powerful structure that needs some years of bottle ageing to balance out. Domizio Cavazza had vineyards in Ovello (and Pora) when he started producing Barbaresco in 1894. It was also among the first 5 vineyards produced as single vineyard by Produttori in 1967.
