Originally, I only planned to pour the De Forville, the Roccalini and the Paitin but it just didn't seem right to host a Barbaresco class and not have a Produttori in the mix. So, I pulled this from the cellar as a bonus. Boy, am I glad I did. On the pop and pour, this had a striking burnt rubber smell; like from a pencil eraser. This blew off after a few minutes however and became sensational with the most perfect expression of Montmorency cherries, tar, and crushed rock. The 2009 Produttori "Montestefano" is so balanced and yet incredibly powerful. It also remains powerfully tannic. The finish is remarkably long; lasting well over two minutes. This is still very primary and would benefit for continued cellar time. Wow...I love this wine. This will drink well for decades to come. Bottle No. 12202. Bravo!

Really expressive, integrated and smooth. Mouth coating with a nice finish.

Excellent tonight. Nice evolution since my last bottle, and just starting to hint at secondary development. Pixilated raspberry floral shadings, offset by a dark mineral core. Length and class. 2019-2023

A powerhouse. Screams 1999. Screams San Stefano. Dense, chewy tannin. Will age for a long time.

Just beautiful. Roses and cherries on the nose. Repeated with depth on the palate.
