Brilliant 2013 Barbaresco Riservas from Produttori del Barbaresco. Huge scores from Antonio Gall

Produttori Barbaresco 2013 Header
"I was blown away by these wines from the Produttori del Barbaresco. The straight 2014 Barbaresco is sublime, while the 2013 Riservas are off the charts....All of the wines are deeply expressive with regards to site and vintage. In other words, it doesn't get much better than this.
Under the direction of Managing Director Aldo Vacca, the Produttori are making some of the most distinguished wines in their history." 
Antonio Galloni, Vinous (October 2017)

Barbaresco Riserva Rabaja 2013
Normally $151.95
Pre Arrival $129.00

Produtorri Barbaresco Rabaja
Antonio Galloni, Vinous:
The 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Rabajà is shockingly seamless in this tasting. Deep layers of fruit virtually bury the tannins, something that is so unusual for a young Rabajà. A host of dark blue-tone fruits, lavender, mint, violet and spice race across the palate in an utterly vivid, compelling Barbaresco of the highest level. Perhaps I caught the Rabajà on an unusually open day, but it is terrific and also quite refined for such a young wine. Drinking window: 2023-2043.

Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano 2013
Normally $151.95
Pre Arrival $129.00
Produttori Barbaresco Monstefano label 2
Antonio Galloni, Vinous: A dark, brooding wine, the 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano comes across as quite virile today, with huge tannins and equally imposing dark fruit. Smoke, leather, licorice and game add to an impression of raw, almost unrestrained, power. There is not a whole lot of finesse here at least not now. The Montestefano is a wine painted in broad brush strokes that emphasize power over elegance. Then again, that is Montestefano. Readers should be in no rush to open the 2013. Drinking window: 2023-2043.

Barbaresco Riserva Asili 2013
Normally $151.95
Pre Arrival $129.00

Produttori Barbaresco Asili label 2 Antonio Galloni, Vinous:  
Absolutely stunning in every way, the 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Asili is also the most complete wine in the lineup at this stage. Floral, lifted and exquisitely beautiful, the 2013 speaks to regal elegance and finesse above all else. Silky tannins add to an impression of total sensuality. At this stage, there is almost no impression of tannin, as the wine is so impeccably balanced. The 2013 shuts down quickly in the glass, which may suggest it is headed for a long period of dormancy. Readers who can find the Asili should not miss it, as it is truly sublime. Drinking window: 2025-2043. 97 Points
Barbaresco Riserva Montefico 2013
Normally $151.95
Pre Arrival $129.00

Produttori Montefico Antonio Galloni, Vinous:
The Barbaresco Riserva Montefico shows all the energy and focus that is typical of this great site, but there is so much depth to the fruit that some of the more angular contours have been softened. Bright saline-infused notes lead to wild flowers and an exotic melange of red fruits in this beautifully delineated, vivid Barbaresco. All the elements are simply in the right place.

Barbaresco Riserva Ovello 2013
Normally $151.95
Pre Arrival $129.00

Produttori Ovello Label Antonio Galloni, Vinous: The Produttori's 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello is all power, tension and nerve. Even so, the 2013 is remarkably civilized and much less austere than young Ovello Barbarescos usually are. Scents of cranberry, white pepper and mint give the wine its signature high-toned aromatics. The Ovello has a Volnay-like purity to its fruit, with Nebbiolo tannins and structure, of course. If that sounds appealing, well, it is. Vivid, sculpted and impossibly beautiful, the Ovello is simply magnificent. Drinking window: 2023-2043. 
96 Points
Barbaresco Riserva Muncagota 2013
Normally $151.95
Pre Arrival $129.00

Produttori Muncagota Label
Antonio Galloni, Vinous: Like most of the wines in this lineup, the 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Muncagota is quite potent. A rush of raspberry jam, wild flowers, white pepper and mint make a strong opening statement. Succulent and yet also structured, the Muncagota has so much to offer. It should be one of the first wines in this range to start opening up, although when that will happen exactly is hard to say. 94 Points

Barbaresco Riserva Paje 2013
Normally $151.95
Pre Arrival $129.00

Produttori Paje Label Antonio Galloni, Vinous: The 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Pajé is simply fabulous. Sweet floral notes soar from the glass as this deep, beautifully resonant Barbaresco shows off its compelling inner sweetness and total sense of poise. The flavors are deep yet fresh, with wonderful fragrance and impeccable balance throughout. A wine of total harmony, the 2013 is going to be nearly impossible to resist young. The 2013 is one of the best versions of the Pajé I can remember tasting. Drinking window: 2023-2043. 96 Points
Barbaresco Riserva Pora 2013
Normally $151.95
Pre Arrival $129.00

Produttori Barbaresco Pora label
Antonio Galloni, Vinous: The 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is soft, pliant and enveloping. In many vintages, the Pora can be a bit light. Not in 2013. The wine is rich and deeply textured, with layers of fruit that continue to build with time in the glass. The tannins are present, but they are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. This is an especially powerful, brooding edition of the Pora. Although impressive today, the 2013 will drink well for decades to come. Drinking window: 2023-2043. 94 Points
Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo 2013
Normally $151.95
Pre Arrival $129.00

Produttori Barbaresco Rio Sordo label
Antonio Galloni, Vinous: The 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo is one of the more gracious, approachable wines in this range. Medium in body, yet deep and beautifully resonant, the 2013 has so much to offer. It should open up a bit earlier than most of the other 2013s in the range. Succulent dark cherry, plum, tobacco, mint, licorice and lavender grace the effortless finish. Drinking window: 2021-2043. 93 Points

Redigaffi label

The 100-Point 
Redigaffi Tua Rita 2015
4 bottles left
It doesn't come any better than this!

James Suckling Tasting Report: 
This is an extraordinary merlot with such purity and focus. Flowers such as violets and hints of orange peel. It is full-bodied yet incredibly energetic and structured. The finish goes on for minutes. Seamless texture. Fresh yet dense. Contrasty. Best Redigaffi ever. Hard not to drink now but a wine for decades.
