    April 27, 2019 - In June 2018 I had the opportunity to taste at the Produttori del Barbaresco. We sampled a vertical of the Ovello Riserva that day, but I was able to taste a 2007, and thought it was reaching a nice drinking point. While it’s still early days, I think this Montestefano is getting into a drinking window, if you are tannin tolerant. The classic red fruit, floral, leather, tar notes were all in play, with plenty of depth for further aging.

    September 23, 2018 - Dark cherries, blackberries, violet, iron. High acidity and tannins. Rather bold with ripe fruit.

    September 21, 2018 - Three Produttori Montestefanos: Blind, I would have probably have guessed this was a 2007 Barolo, it is very 2007 Piemonte. Deep ruby, softly browning at the glass rim. A bouquet of black cherries, blackberries, black tea, creosote and dark earth. More primary on palate than on bouquet. Plush, fully ripe fruit. Bright black cherries, blackberries, soil and minerals, iron and crushed granite. Some savoury, umami notes. It moved more that way over the next two evenings with rusty and earthy notes and a touch of tobacco. Drinking well now.

    August 30, 2018 - Very big, bold rustic Barberesco. Light colour is deceiving. Packs lots of punch. Pair with BBQ or hearty food.

    June 23, 2018 - Hardly needed any decanting time to sing. Lush cherry, raspberry, ton of red flowers, dried herbs and a bit of earth. Fruit is plush as with so many '07 Italian wines but the wine firmly retains a restrained classical style. Should also mention it's amazing how much minerality comes through on the back end. A wine of exceptional balance and elegance, confirming that the cooperative continues to do the world a great service by producing a set of "reference" barbaresci showcasing the region at relatively affordable prices.
