Produttori Del Barbaresco - Barbaresco Riserva 'Montefico' 2009 750ml
2017 Barbaresco DOCG Riserva 750ml
Barbaresco DOCG is produced every year from the 100 hectares of vineyards controlled by the Produttori within the appellation, mainly in the Barbaresco village itself.
In the best vintages, the historical crus are vinified separately. A not widely known vineyard, yet highly sought after by the Barbaresco aficionados. It is often compared to the slightly larger and more famous Montestefano vineyard because of the similar soil (high calcium) and close proximity between the two. Exposure is full South, and therefore quite warm, but it is not unusual for Montefico to have brisk morning hours during the growing season.
Austere when young and somehow less fleshy than Montestefano, it shows a beautiful mineral finish. It produces wines with the breed of any classic Barbaresco and with incredible complexity behind the tannins. First vintage released was 1970.
