A tiny cult producer of Barbaresco at the Montestefano cru. Everything at the winery is done by Teobaldo and his wife Maria, with the help of their son Baldo . They are entirely hands-on and make just two wines - the Barbaresco Montestefano and a Dolcetto d'Alba. The Montestefano parcel is next to his house, and he tends it meticulously. Since the beginning, the vines have been farmed organically and the wine is made in the basement of the property - they are truly the definition of old-school.
A fruit-driven nose composed of sweet and sour cherries, red berries and warm spices. On the palate, dark and intense, with layers of flavor and notes of tobacco, pine cones and forest floor, and a tannic tartness on the finish.
