Wine Advocate: 96 Points
“The 2017 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano is darkly concentrated and among the richest wines in this series of single-vineyard Riservas. Montestefano is angular textured and bold with dark fruit aromas dried blackberry toasted almond and cured tobacco. With this vintage you get an age-worthy wine that offers brawn and power for drinking in the medium term but it will become increasingly silky and slender with time. Dusty tannins and crushed stone appear on the long finish. There were 14486 bottles produced.”

Description

“Produttori del Barbaresco has been hitting it out of the ballpark these past years with a string of excellent vintages that resulted in the production of their entire line of Riservas. However that good momentum comes to an end because the Riservas were not made in 2018. That vintage saw all the fruit blended into one non-MGA Barbaresco. And with the 2017 Riservas reviewed here you might find these bottles hard to find. Production was 30% lower in this growing season because of a very careful fruit selection process. In fact Aldo Vacca calls 2017 a “roller coaster vintage with frost then hail then a summer drought.” Wine Advocate
