La Ca' Nova Montestefano Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2012

$29.99

La Ca' Nova's 2012 Barbaresco Montestefano is a reference-point wine for this site in the town of Barbaresco. Creamy, ample and dense through the middle, the 2012 possesses striking depth and fabulous overall balance. The aromatics develop with time in the glass, but the Montestefano is mostly a wine of texture. Succulent red cherry, plum and pomegranate overtones build into the voluptuous, layered finish. The 2012 drinks well now, but also has the structure to age at least into the medium-term. This is another superb wine from Marco Rocca and one of the highlights of the vintage.

Pop and pour after 30 minutes of air; initial nose of funk; too much for my liking; re-corked; Day 2, completely different...beautiful nose of cherry, dark cherry, roses, herbs and spice; palate is light, beautiful, pure, cherry, minerals, dustiness; solid tannin structure and good acid; very enjoyable.

Color is startlingly advanced, but the wine is spot-on. Fragrant nose of sweet macerated cherries and floaty baking spices. Nice gravelly minerality notes underneath. Full flavored yet has a sense of balance. More on the savory side, with earthy dark cherry fruit taking a back seat to underbrush, minerals. Loads of soft tannin.!long finish. Very nicely done
