As for the 2008 Produttori del Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano – The nose showed an elegant intensity as a mix of rich raspberry, cranberry, rose, potpourri, exotic spice and minerals seduced the senses. On the palate, I found dark red fruits, exotic spice, earth and tar, yet somehow there was weightlessness to this wine’s massive presence. A balanced structure began to show toward the close and lasted through the finish. This wine was feminine, yet massive in its layers of fruit and structure. It should be even better in ten year’s time. (94 points)
Changing how we enjoy wine or just another fancy toy?
