A Dream Brew - Don't Miss 2016 Piedmont:
2016 Luigi Giordano Barbaresco Montestefano

Posted by Ian McFadden

Without a doubt, Giordano represents one of the great finds of the 2016 Piedmont vintage.

The style at Giordano is rugged, personality-filled, and very classic. They are soulful wines brimming with a slightly wild and totally captivating complexity. The fact that Giordano has holdings in some of Barbaresco's top sites, including Montestefano and Asili, only makes this domaine more exciting.

In November, we offered Giordano's Cavanna. Today, we're excited to offer Giordano's 2016 Barbaresco Montestefano for $52.95 per bottle and $48.95 in 4-packs. 

Montestefano is one of the great sites of Barbaresco. It's a wine that soars with tightly coiled finesse. Montestefano is legendary for how it marries elegance, detail, and intensity.

Giordano's 2016 Montestefano blew me away when I tasted it. The 2016 Piedmonts are a dream brew of concentration, a cool-toned profile, and gorgeous balance. The Montestefano really underscores this quality. It delivers incredible depth along with detail and class. Antonio Galloni sums up the wine as follows: "The potential here is evident". 

We've been tasting Giordano for the past handful of years and it's clear that 2016 catapulted the wines to a whole other level. Their Montestefano is breathtakingly good and highlights why this is one of Barbaresco's top crus. At sub-$50 on 4-packs, this is a can't miss deal.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2016 Barbaresco Montestefano offers all of the breadth that distinguishes this site while retaining its classic, mid-weight feel. Darker shades of Nebbiolo emerge in the black cherry, plum, lavender, licorice, sage and spice flavors. Like all of these Barbarescos, the Montestefano is super intriguing. The potential here is evident."
