La Ca' Nova Vigne Bric Mentina Montefico Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2012

$28.99

The 2012 Barbaresco Montefico Vigna Bric Mentina packs plenty of punch, but it is also a relatively approachable wine because of its impeccable overall balance. Red stone fruit, blood orange, mint, chalk and white pepper give the 2012 striking aromatic lift and palate presence. Translucent and energetic, the 2012 offers a super appealing combination of Montefico tension in a mid-weight, relatively accessible style that will offer plenty of pleasure with minimal cellaring. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Tom Casagrande Delectable Pro

The palate on this was rocking from the first minute in the decanter but the nose took some time to come around. Initially the nose was very balsamic and one dimensional but over the course of 90 minutes it developed scents of forest floor, dusty mahogany, and macerated cherry. Palate is amazing, with intense, sweet dark cherry fruit, moist humus, savory minerals, and old barrel notes. Great concentration counterbalanced with softness of texture and decent acids. Great length and purity. Superb.
