Posted by Ian McFadden

Produttori del Barbaresco simply nailed the 2016 vintage.

The 2016 Montestefano really highlights Produttori's success. It's a wine of total class.

As we've said before, the 2016 Piedmont wines are a dream brew of depth, verve, and clarity. It’s one of the rare times where the wines possess the concentration of a ripe vintage along with the elegance and precision associated with cooler years.

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.

The 2016 Montestefano has such precision, finesse, and clarity. There's a seamless and silken quality. Galloni sums up the wine very well when he writes: "This profound Barbaresco will thrill readers for years to come."

The 2016 represents a high-water mark for Produttori, which has served as a benchmark since its founding in 1958. Produttori del Barbaresco's 2016s represents one of the high points of the great vintage.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano is another profound wine in this lineup. There is virtually no perception of tannin, as the fruit is so rich and so voluptuous. Dark cherry/plum fruit, spice, menthol, licorice and a whole range of balsamic inflections grow as the Montestefano shows off its class. This profound Barbaresco will thrill readers for years to come."
