Tasting notes - Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano 2015
Montestefano is one of the last vineyards in Barbaresco to be picked. It was first produced as a single-vineyard wine by Produttori in 1974. The 2015 is big but balanced: Intense aromas of macerated cherry are joined by some blackberry and barrel spice notes. The acidity is perfectly balanced, playing off the structure and density on the palate, helping this to remain light on its feet throughout. Superb. (James Button, Decanter, January 2020)
Best to be enjoyed with
The best way to pair Barbaresco by Produttori del Barbaresco is with white truffle recipes such as risotto al tartufo bianco, agnolotti al tartufo, brasied meat. A great companion for old strong cheeses like Parmigiano, Pecorino, blue cheeses such as Gorgonzola and Castelmagno. It needs to be opened at least 2 hours before drinking. Pour the nectar into a crystal decanter.
The Winery: Produttori del Barbaresco
The Produttori del Barbaresco has a long and distinguished history and great wines have always been made here. Prior to 1894, Nebbiolo grapes were sold to make Barolo wine or simply labelled 'Nebbiolo di Barbaresco'. But in 1894, Domizio Cavazza, headmaster of the Royal Enological School of Alba and a Barbaresco resident, created the first cooperative. Cavazza understood that Nebbiolo from Barbaresco differed from Barolo and, for the first time, recognised this on the wine label. The Produttori del Barbaresco now has 50 members and 100 hectares (250 acres) of Nebbiolo vineyards in the Barbaresco appellation.
