An Italian wine produced in the Piedmont region with a grape called NEBBIOLO. Both Barbaresco and Barolo suffered greatly from phylloxera, leading to low quality production. It wasn't until WWII that a family producer called Gaia (guy-uh) began to bring quality back to Barbaresco wines. Another great step to quality was the start of the Produttori del Barbaresco in 1958 - a consortium of small producers making famous single vineyard wines.
We bought the last of the 2011 Single Vineyard Produtorri del Barbaresco's:
