Enjoying the nerve and austerity of this Montefico, there’s plenty of fruit beginning to express a tertiary side, all backed up by the grippy tannin and firm mineral core. Lifted nose, dried orange peel, crushed mint, dried black cherry, peppercorn, earth, some leathery VA.

Everything you wished for in a great 2016 Barbaresco. Anise seed, dark cherry, and perhaps surprisingly, a smidge of savory hay. Overall, at 3.5 hours, this 2016 is finally opening up. Tasted 2016 Montefico in Dec-2022.

Still so young, but not tight. High tones of cherry and flowers and a long, drying finish.

Tightky wound. Lavender, anise, hard cherry candy, herbs. The texture and quality of tannin are really impressive. Very long detailed finish. This is a baby but phenomenal with 3 hours of air.

Nothing like drinking a library vintage at the winery! Classic Barbaresco all around and in its prime drinking window.

Incredible Montefico. Power and grace in one wine. Gorgeous, layered nose that reflected right back on the palate. Mesmerizing.
