About Produttori del Barbaresco vinyard
The Ovello area occupies the northernmost part of the municipality of Barbaresco and is a large hill with both West / South-West and East / South-East exposures. However, the different locations have a similar soil with a higher clay content than other vineyards and it is for this reason that they have been grouped, in the classification that became official in 2007, in a single sub-area. The Ovello hill is on average cooler, due to the higher altitude above sea level and the influence of the northern winds that reach most of the vineyard without obstacles. These pedoclimatic characteristics give more aggressive tannins in youth and a young and exuberant fruit. Produced as a Reserve since 1967, this is also a historic area for the cultivation of Nebbiolo,
The Produttori del Barbaresco vinifies exclusively Nebbiolo grapes from the vineyards owned by the 50 associated farmers.
In each vintage a Barbaresco wine and a Nebbiolo Langhe are produced. The first, produced since 1958, is the result of the assembly of grapes from different vineyards in the area of origin. It is the wine that has made the history of the company and that is synonymous with quality, typicality and convenience all over the world. The second, marketed for the first time in 1975, is the result of the vinification of Nebbiolo grapes from the younger vineyards.
Nebbiolo Langhe is thus an excellent wine to approach this great grape variety and to understand its personality in a simpler and more immediate form.
In some vintages, uniformly considered excellent throughout the area of origin, nine Barbarescos are also produced from specific vineyards and marketed after four years, as Riserva. These are all historical vineyards of great fame that the same Barbaresco Producers has contributed to making famous: Asili, Montefico, Montestefano, Muncagota, Ovello, Pajè, Pora, Rabajà, Rio Sordo.
Produced since 1967, only in great vintages, and all vinified in exactly the same way, they allow the enthusiast a unique experience, almost a walk through the Barbaresco vineyards, savoring the different nuances and characteristics of each one.
