2008 Produttori del Barbaresco "Montefico" Barbaresco Riserva

SKU #1138025 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Montefico hits the palate with a blast of fruit intermingled with copious acidity and pure structure. Montefico shares a boundary with Ovello, and shows many of the structural elements typically associated with that side, but with more depth in its fruit, probably because of the southern exposure. The high altitude of these parcels ensures there is plenty of freshness and vibrancy. The Montefico is dazzling, but it will require considerable patience. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2012)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright, full red. Inviting aromas of redcurrant and orange zest complicated by subtle truffle and earth notes. Round, rich, ripe and full, with lovely chewy sweetness to its soil-driven red fruit flavors. Not yet as delineated as the nose suggests but dense and consistent from start to finish, with no shortage of energy for aging. Broad, fine-grained tannins build nicely on the rising aftertaste. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (11/2013)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark There's purity to the cherry and raspberry fruit in this red, accented by floral and spice notes. Firmly structured, but remains graceful, lingering with fruit and spice on the aftertaste. (BS) Inner quote mark (11/2012)

K&L Notes

Produttori del Barbaresco is a type of cooperative arrangement between 56 growers in Barbaresco. Its roots go back to 1958 when small growers of the region working in cooperation with the priest of Barbaresco village came together to ensure the quality and uniqueness of their production. Each family still maintains their small vineyard holdings, and most years these are blended into either bottlings of Barbaresco or Nebbiolo, and in great years there can be one or more of 9 single vineyard bottlings produced. These wines will always have their vineyards and growers noted and are quite special.
