94pts Wine Enthusiast

The nose opens with aromas of dried cranberries and red currant all mixed in a bowl with anise, clove and freshly cut herbs. Firm and structured with a lifted freshness that cuts across the palate. The palate transcribes the aromas perfectly with the addition of a touch of crushed stone that adds another layer to this wine that needs a spell in the cellar. Drink 2027 onward. 

94pts Jeb Dunnuck

A youthful ripe red color, the bright and lifted 2019 Barbaresco Riserva Muncagota is fantastic on the nose, with notes of bright pomegranate and orange zest. It also has fantastic energy and vibrancy on the palate, with a vertical and nervous feel, balanced ripeness, finely coiled tannins, and a long finish. Drink 2024-2036.

94pts James Suckling

Aromas of raspberries and forest berries with hints of graphite, tea leaves and cocoa. Medium-bodied with a polished and silky mid-palate, ending with a firm and chewy aftertaste. It’s fresh and vibrant overall. Try after three to four years.

93pts Vinous

The 2019 Barbaresco Riserva Muncagota is shaping up to be gorgeous. The 2019 is marked by a very evident brightness that is not always present. Medium in body and gracious, with terrific balance, the Muncagota is very impressive in this early tasting of the 2019 Riservas. It could turn out to be one of the surprises in this range. Keep an eye on this. 

Winemaker's Notes

Medium body vintage with intense mineral and red fruit aromas, balanced ripe tannins.

Pair with fresh egg-pasta, risotto, white and red meat, game and venaison.

Blend: 100% Nebbiolo

About the Winery

Produttori del Barbaresco exclusively vinifies Nebbiolo grapes from the vineyards owned by the 50 member-growers in within the Barbaresco DOCG appellation.
In any given vintage a Barbaresco and a Nebbiolo Langhe are produced. The former, first released in the 1958 vintage, is made by assembling grapes from different fully grown vineyards. This is the flagship wine of the winery, known all over the world for the solid quality and great value that it represents. The latter, first released in 1975, is made with a selection of grapes from younger vineyards in within the region. It is suited for earlier consumption and it is a great way to introduce one’s palate to the beauty of the Nebbiolo grape and the Barbaresco terroir.

In great vintages only, nine single vineyards are produced and released after four years under the Riserva (Reserve) program. These wines are produced from a selection of grapes sourced from nine historical premium sites within the Barbaresco village boundaries. Historical vineyards, known for centuries for producing high quality grapes and now worldwide famous also thanks to the Produttori del Barbaresco legacy. Their names are Asili, Montefico, Montestefano, Muncagota, Ovello, Pajè, Pora, Rabajà, Rio Sordo.

First released in 1967, they are vinified and aged with exactly the same style in order to show their different personalities at their best and purest form. A tasting of the nine "Produttori Crus" is therefore an unique experience, just like a walk through the hills of Barbaresco can be!
