"One of the many highlights in this range, the Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano is superb. A big enrobing wine, the Montestefano wraps around the palate with stunning depth. Today, the Montestefano is utterly embryonic, and yet it exudes depth, resonance and pure class. The Montestefano is one of the more complete wines in the range because of the way it deftly balances fruit intensity and structure. Readers will have to be patient, though."~AG

"This 12.5 acre vineyard resides on a steep hillside so it can withstand more rain than some of the other vineyards. Montestefano is the "Barolo" of the single vineyard Barbaresco reserves from Produttori del Barbaresco. Its meaty structure and thickness on the palate makes it an excellent aging wine. The first vintage of Montestefano was produced in 1974. Ruby red color. Bouquet of dark, ripe fruit. Full-bodied and rich on the palate with a powerful finish. Pairs well with fresh egg pastas, risottos, white meats, red meats, venison and cheeses. Total production 13,000 bottles."~Winery Notes

Produttori del BarbarescoFounded in 1958, the priest of the village of Barbaresco, recognizing that the only way small properties could survive was by joining their efforts, gathered together nineteen small growers and founded the Produttori del Barbaresco. From its humble beginnings making the first three vintages in the church basement, Produttori del Barbaresco has grown to a 52 member co-operative with 250 acres of Nebbiolo vineyards in the Barbaresco appellation and an annual production of over 500,000 bottles. Its vineyards amount to almost 1/6 of the vineyards of the area. Each member is in full control of their land, growing Nebbiolo grapes with the skill and dedication they have honed over generations.
Playing a key role in elevating the quality level of Barbaresco over the years, Produttori del Barbaresco produces a simpler Nebbiolo Langhe, a Barbaresco blend and nine single vineyard wines produced in premier vineyards: Asili, Rabajà, Pora, Montestefano, Ovello, Pajè, Montefico, Muncagota and Rio Sordo.
