Barbaresco Bric Mentina, La Ca Nova
La Ca` Nova`s 2016 Barbaresco Montefico Vigna Bric Mentina is magnificent. All the elements are in the right place. Vertical construction and intense aromatic depth give the Montefico much of its unique feel. Amazingly, there is virtually no perception of tannin today, although I suspect I may have caught the wine at a particularly expressive stage. No matter, the 2016 Montefico has a very bright future. I can hardly wait to taste it from bottle.
