This splendid wine was born in the renowned Barbaresco Cru called Montestefano, on marly-limestone soils and facing the south. Classic nose: expresses aromas of rose petals, berries, root and plum; the breath is fresh and young and anticipates a certain austerity then repeated in the mouth. In the mouth the fresh vintage is highlighted by solid tannins and an important structure, alcohol is well integrated with the extract of remarkable quality and elegance. The picture that is drawn is of remarkable misty austerity accentuated in the long and majestic finish. Beautiful vintage!

wine description

This splendid wine was born in the renowned Barbaresco Cru called Montestefano, on marly-limestone soils and facing the south. The vineyards (over fifty years old) are a few meters away from the workshop where Teobaldo Rivella and his wife, expertly supporting the vintage, give us a traditional-style Barbaresco: 25-day maceration on the skins, use of only indigenous yeasts and aging in large barrels for 36 months followed by further refinement in the bottle.

CLIMAte

After the month of January and the first part of February, characterized by mild temperatures and low rainfall, frequent rains arrived in March capable of guaranteeing a good water reserve in the soil. The subsequent tendentially cool period favored a delay in the vegetative restart of about ten days which lasted until the end of summer.

tasting notes

Barbaresco Montestefano has a bright ruby color with a light garnet nail. The bouquet is complex on the nose, with notes of raspberry, roses, spices and tar. On the palate, finesse and elegance stand out, with soft and velvety tannins, excellent structure, and perfect balance between fruit, alcohol and acidity. Long persistence with a finish that evokes the land and game.

aging capacity

It is a long aging wine.
