Community Tasting Notes 5

    December 16, 2020 - The wine is concentrated and closed at this point. It needs a couple of days to open up. However, once opened up it has very sweet and long tannins, with orange rind and spiced. Also a balsamic note. In other notes I saw comments on evident wood notes. I did not find much of that at this point so I think the wood is integrated. This said, the wine needs more time in the bottle in order to become more expressive and relaxed and deliver all the power typical of this cru. As a reminder the Santo Stefano vineyard is a monopole of the Stupino family since 2012 (the last year of Giacosa Santo Stefano being 2011). Given that 2012 is not a great year, 2013 is the first great vintage of this new life for Santo Stefano.

    April 9, 2020 - Eye: dark garnet color. Nose: deep toasted oak scents with cherries and hint of vanilla and herbs. Palate: solid tannins, crisp, medium body, nice fruit and long finish.

    November 18, 2019 - I was worried this would show too young, but I was surprised at how open this was. I liked it quite a bit.

    August 16, 2019 - At the start of its journey and although aided by the great 2013 vintage still is a bit punchy and requires its time to open up.
    Dark fruited, tar feel, dried fruits and still very much fruit driven barring a few secondary notes. Wish we had time to decant. 90 and very promising.

    February 9, 2019 - Decanted for about 30 minutes. First impression - thin on nose and palate, but with some further air and time, it blossomed and showed a lovely gravely, earthy and sappy flavor, very tasty... but this was a brief period, as it then shut down again in the glass. Give this time, it is a pleasant wine with some classic Barbaresco elements of dried herbs, etc.
