The first vintage of Montefico was produced in 1967 and this vineyard is one of the best kept secrets in Barbaresco. Montefico takes on the deep character of a classic Barbaresco.
The bouquet of the Montefico is a rich one with spicy red fruit notes. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with solid structure, intense minerality and slow-maturing tannins.

"The 2009 Barbaresco Riserva Montefico is one of the more striking wines in the range. Deeply expressive with regard to place, the Montefico is laced with dark cherry, plum, menthol, licorice, spice notes, all supported by the firm, incisive tannins and vibrant salinity that are the hallmark of this great site. There is little doubt the Montefico is one of the highlights in this range of 2009 Riservas from the Produttori. This is a terrific showing."
