92 points "Abrigo’s 2006 Barbaresco Montersino is a dark, powerful offering loaded with black cherries, spices, smoke, tar and licorice, all of which are wrapped around an imposing frame. Today the tannins lack a measure of polish, but that should come with further bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.
