Barbaresco Riserva, Montestefano, Produttori del Barbaresco, 75cl
A limestone-rich site yielding abundant tannins, and a rich decadent profile thanks to its southern exposition. A monster in waiting and one of the last to be picked, it sometimes looks more like Barolo with loads of rose and liquorice complementing the deep-seated red fruits. Worth a few years in the cellar.
Fruity coffee, roasted red berries and whiffs of forest floor oakiness.
