Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco 1964

This is one of the few examples I know of where a producer has made a Normale, a Riserva, and a Riserva Speciale of the same wine.

In this period (pre-1980), Riserva and Riserva Speciale were distinct designations. All Barbaresco required (and still requires) one year in wood. Barbaresco Normale requires a total of 2 years of aging before release. In this period, Barbaresco Riserva required 3 years of aging before release and Barbaresco Riserva Speciale required 4 years of aging before release.

Post-1980, Riserva Speciale ceased to exist and Barbaresco Riserva took on the requirement of 4 years of aging before release.
