Produttori del Barbaresco Riserva Montefico Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2007

$64.95

The 2007 Barbaresco Riserva Montefico is all about energy and sheer power. The Montefico is quite virile, even in this vintage, with a certain austerity in the tannin that will require time in bottle to soften. Dark red fruit, leather, anise and spices are some of the notes that wrap around the insistent, pointed finish. There is plenty of nuance here, but not the early appeal of the year. This is a great showing... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Nothing like drinking a library vintage at the winery! Classic Barbaresco all around and in its prime drinking window.

Monster of a wine. Amazing elegance on the nose and then this huge palate that beats the hell out of you. 10 -15 years easily.

Phenomenal. So fragrant! Rose petals, fresh earth, and pretty black fruits. Tannins already integrated perfectly.

Chewy raisin stem, leather, rose petal, loam, and mint. Restrained yet rich. Perfectly mature, even elegant.

Needs a few more years in bottle for wood to integrate

Slight brick hue on the edges. Very tight upon opening with shy granberries and red currants on the nose. Taste is dominated by tannins and very cool red berries. After 5h slow-ox wine starts to open, nose gets more sweeter sensations and some spices and leather. Tannins turn sweeter and the fruit really picks up gaining intensity and wine is a joy to drink. However it still tends to close a bit on the glass. To me this is atleast 3-5 years from peak

Very tannic, dry, lacks character of good Italian wine

The most beautiful bright crimson. Aromas of briar and earth and savouriness. Savoury but with a fruit core, great line and length and still somewhat aggressive tannins. At 9 years old still a baby, but an assertive and masculine one.
