2008 Produttori del Barbaresco - Ovello Barbaresco Riserva (91 pts) @produttoridelbarbaresco @viaswine @rarewineco · 🙋‍♂️ Thoughts on meaty 🍖 flavors in wine 🍷❓· ℹ️ This wine was tasted blind in a horizontal of the 9 Riservas from the Produttori del Barbaresco. The Ovello vineyard is the Northern most vineyard in the Barbaresco area. It has an elevation of 250-320 m, which results in a cooler microclimate. It is a large vineyard with multiple subzones and exposure varies from southwest to southeast. Calcareous soils rich in clay. The wines of Ovello tend to be fuller body, explosive fruit, and more rustic tannins. Among the first 5 vineyards to be produced as a single vineyard in 1967· 👁 Medium ruby color· 👃 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of cured meat (prosciutto), tar, inky, clove, dark cherry, boysenberry, and earthy· 👄 The wine is dry, high acidity, high drying tannins, medium+ alcohol, and medium+ body. Medium+ length salty finish· 🔔 This was still a bit tight, but showed some interesting complexity on the nose and palate. There is a lot of structure but isn't overpowering. This was 4 of 9 for me, but 8 of 9 for the group. Clearly they have no idea what they are talking about 🤔 In Blind, We Trust 😎
