2017 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. Entirely hand-harvested from the Montestefano vineyard at 270 meters above sea level. 22 day fermentation in stainless steel tank with pumping over 2-4 times a day. Aged 18 months in 3000L oak casks, then aged 10 months in bottle. Full-bodied, ripe fruit, firm tannins and a long finish. 6,500 bottles produced.
96 points, Wine Enthusiast. "Enticing, earthy aromas of iris, camphor and dark-skinned berry mingle with truffle, leather and wild herb on this full-bodied red. Hailing from one of the best sites in Barbaresco, it's firmly structured and incredibly delicious, delivering raspberry compote, ripe Marasca cherry, tobacco and licorice alongside youthfully assertive, noble tannins. This is one for cellaring. Drink 2025–2037."
