Winemaker's Notes

Ruby red with rich, spicy red fruit notes. Full-bodied with solid structure, intense minerality and slow-maturing tannins.

Pairs well with fresh egg pastas, risottos, white meats, red meats, venison and cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Montefico hits the palate with a blast of fruit intermingled with copious acidity and pure structure. Montefico shares a boundary with Ovello, and shows many of the structural elements typically associated with that side, but with more depth in its fruit, probably because of the southern exposure. The high altitude of these parcels ensures there is plenty of freshness and vibrancy. The Montefico is dazzling, but it will require considerable patience. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2048."
95 Points

"There's purity to the cherry and raspberry fruit in this red, accented by floral and spice notes. Firmly structured, but remains graceful, lingering with fruit and spice on the aftertaste."
91 Points

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines.
