We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Rich nose reminiscent of ripe currant. Rich velvety mouthfeel-ripe and fragrant. Perfect acidity to balance the wine. This is a substantial wine with even tannins. Recommended with roasted and grilled red and white meats. Always delicious with cheese.

Wine SpectatorA sleeping giant. Slowly but surely explodes on the palate, with beautiful plum, blackberry and cherry character and hints of mineral. Full-bodied, with solid yet ripe tannins and a long finish. Best after 2006. 1,165 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2000 Barbaresco Santo Stefano is unquestionably a highly appealing wine. A classic garnet with floral notes, anise, tobacco and wild cherries on the nose, its palate reveals sweet flavors of cinnamon, licorice, tar, and chocolate, a soft texture, and important length. Already approachable, and unusually up-front for a Barbaresco from this vineyard, it will easily last fifteen years.
