Only 600 cases are made of this beautiful Barbaresco from the Montersino vineyard. Ruby red, rich and complex. Excellent ripe red fruit including plums and cherries, with undertones of sweet vanilla, tobacco and spices. Excellent aging potential and best when decanted.
"The 2005 Barbaresco Montersino is especially beautiful in this vintage. This dark, masculine Barbaresco offers up a compelling array of menthol, earthiness, tar, smoke, dark fruit and toasted oak on an imposing frame. Despite the wine’s heft, it possesses more than enough stuffing to balance the tannins. This is an impressive effort from a producer whose wines are getting better and better with each passing vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022. Abrigo, a small producer based in Treiso, continues to improve. These are his best wines yet." -Rated 92, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Soft and sweet, with beautiful plum and berry character and coffee flavors underneath. Rich and very long. A gorgeous young wine. Best after 2011. 600 cases made." -Rated 93, Wine Enthusiast
