95 points "The 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano is exquisite and harmonious from start to finish. Among the more structured 2008s, the Montestefano is the wine that most hides its tannin, as the fruit is intensely perfumed, rich and totally seductive. Today the Montestefano provides the illusion of being relatively accessible, but it is virtually certain to shut down in bottle. The 2008 boasts striking aromatics, seemingly endless layers of fruit and power to burn. Readers can think of the Montestefano as a synthesis of Montefico, Ovello and Rabaja. Not bad, to say the least. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2048...95+." WA 10/2012 "These 12.5 acres of calcareous limestone produce a tannic nebbiolo, the most umami of all the 2008 crus from Produttori del Barbaresco, a wine suited to long aging. The wine smells like autumn, earthy and dark, with scents of porcini and the fatness of grilled mushrooms. It’s potent, with flavors that last for minutes, a fascinating wine to match with foods, whether chunks of aged cheese or something more ornate, like veal with truffles...94" Wine & Spirits " Best 2018-2048
