Montestefano is the "Barolo" of the single vineyard Barbaresco rieserves from Produttori del Barbaresco. Its meaty structure and thickness on the palate make it an excellent aging wine. The first vintage of Montestefano was produced in 1974.
The 2009 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano presents with aromas of dark, ripe fruit notes. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and thick with a powerful finish.

"The 2009 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano brings together the best qualities of the vintage, with a solid core of intense fruit, expressive aromatics and a measure of tannic heft that will keep the wine fresh and vibrant for many years. Dark cherry, plum, spice and leather notes flesh out on the huge, voluptuous finish. In 2009, the Montestefano is fabulous."
