The best producers often achieved amazingly fresh-tasting, firm, juicy and lively Barbaresco in 2017. They almost make you forget that the year as a whole was once again hotter and, for long periods, no less dry than 2015. The rains that began towards the end of August and the associated cooling did the development of the vines in the vineyards of the area noticeably good. This is the third excellent vintage in a row for the region.
Unfortunately, some important producers did not accept our invitation to send in their wines. In total, we were only provided with just under 70 wines, all of which we present to you here and in the accompanying PDF and in the corresponding section. The links behind the headings will take you to all the Barbaresco wines tasted in each vintage and their producers.
