Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Casotto 1971

I believe this wine was made in this vintage. The vintage on the one photo I have looks odd. If you have a better photo, please send it.

Casotto is viewed as a subsection of the Ovello vineyard in Alessandro Masnaghetti's map of Barbaresco. However in Slow Food's A Wine Atlas of the Langhe, it is viewed as a separate vineyard bordering Ovello, and is also refered to as Loreto or Casotto-Loreto or Vigna Casot. Note that there is also a Barbaresco vineyard named Casot (or Casotto) in the village of Treiso.

Produttori also made a Barbaresco Riserva Ovello in 1971.

There was definitely Casotto Riserva made by Produttori in 1970 and a Casotto non-riserva made by Produttori in 1974. I am not aware of other vintages in which a Casotto was produced but there may be others.
