- 'Montefico' - burlesque but elegently structured Barbaresco
- Great vintage
- Available 2nd week of June
Produttori del Barbaresco has often been referenced as the 'greatest value in age-worthy wine' when their Barbaresco could be purchased widely and deeply by wine lovers and cellared confidently for up to 20 years or more. Now, with the world awake to the quality and beauty of nebbiolo from Piedmonte, the wines have steadily increased in price but can still represent excellent value compared to their peers. Produttori's 'Montefico' is a looser-knit, open but densely-packed Barbaresco of enormours power and volume, but contains enough juicy acidity and fine tannin to ensure it will be a long term proposition for the cellar
The Barbaresco Riserva Montefico shows all the energy and focus that is typical of this great site, but there is so much depth to the fruit that some of the more angular contours have been softened. Bright saline-infused notes lead to wild flowers and an exotic melange of red fruits in this beautifully delineated, vivid Barbaresco. All the elements are simply in the right place.
