Who does the Barbaresco taste for?

Barbaresco gives off olfactory and gustatory sensations, but in the production cellars, it will also fill your eyes with many other feelings. The basements of Barbaresco are also beautiful to visit. The producers will let you taste their best Barbaresco, and you will be enchanted!
How many producers of Barbaresco?
The production area of Barbaresco is not very large. The area around Alba includes four municipalities, Barbaresco, Neive, Treiso, and San Rocco, in about 700 hectares of Nebbiolo. The producers are divided into two categories: those that give their production (in part or totally) to the Cantina dei Produttori di Barbaresco and those that sell directly. There are more than 100 producers, and CRU characterizes their products. They are called cru, based on the vineyard and the particular location.
