2015 La Ca' Növa "Montestefano" Barbaresco DOCG
100% organic Nebbiolo. The vineyard Montestefano is known as the Barolo of Barbaresco for its richness and power, and this stunning offering lives up to the nickname. Ample and explosive, the 2015 vintage covers every corner of the palate with intense fruit, bright acidity and structure. Traditionally made and always high scoring, this wine really overdelivers. Super ripe dark cherry, plum, orange peel, spice, tobacco, leather, smoke and licorice infuse the exotic, resonant finish.
94 points, Antonio Galloni's Vinous. "The 2015 Barbaresco Montestefano fleshes out in all dimensions, as it does in all the best years. Warm, rich and inviting, the 2015 is a wine of pure and total pleasure. Black cherry, plum, sage, lavender, menthol, licorice and spice take on exotic shades of expression. All things considered, the 2015 falls just a bit short of being thrilling. In exchange, though, readers will find a Barbaresco that will drink well with minimal cellaring. What a gorgeous wine this is."
