Barbaresco Montefico, Vecchie Viti, Roagna
A wine of classic elegance, poise and energy. Scents of orange peel, star anise, spice and rosewater give the Montefico a decidedly exotic feel. The firm Montefico tannins are present, but the 2012 is a Barbaresco that favors finesse over power. As always, the Montefico has a very distinctive tannic grip as one of its key signatures. Today, the Montefico is perfumed, ethereal and exquisitely beautiful.
