- Closure: Cork
Not widely known, yet highly sought after by the Barbaresco aficionados. It is often compared to the slightly larger and more famous Montestefano vineyard because of the similar soil (high calcium) and close proximity between the two. It lies half way between the regions of Montestefano and Ovello. Exposure is full South, therefore quite warm, but it is not unusual for Montefico to have brisk morning hours during the growing season because of the cooler northern wind that occasionally funnels in from the Tanaro River and into the narrow valley between the villages of Barbaresco and Neive. Austere when young and somehow less fleshy than Montestefano, it shows a beautiful mineral finish. It produces wines with the breed of any classic Barbaresco and with incredible complexity behind the tannins.
The Produttori del Barbaresco 2015 Barbaresco Riserva Montefico boasts a solid center of gravity with dark fruit, plum, spice and spent embers. Everything about this wine is sultry, velvety and succulent. It goes to follow that the wine's structure is more pronounced, contoured and shapely. This Riserva delivers more sheer fruit weight (in the context of the always elegant Nebbiolo grape) that is carried with grace and poise throughout. Some 16,666 bottles were released.
Monica Larner - Wine Advocate (July 2020)
The 2015 Barbaresco Riserva Montefico is one of the most intriguing wines in this range. My impression is that the 2015 still has quite a bit to say, but this is Montefico, where the wines are slow to reveal themselves. White pepper, dried herbs, dried red cherry and mint add a super-appealing upper register. This is such a compelling Barbaresco.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
Red cherry, baking spice and baked clay, depth of raspberry fruit with a dried flower and chamomile perfume. Has a lot of grip and grain, quiet power, and the finish runs long and savoury. So of the earth. Perhaps a touch of warmth, but really good.
Gary Walsh - The Wine Front
Heady spice notes, exotic spice let’s say, sour cherry, faintest alpine herbs and some anise too. The palate is pinot-esque and pure, sheathed in fine ultra-minerally tannin, slightly meaty-gamey, sinewy in a way and oh so mouth-watering. Svelte, light but distinctly complex and inwardly concentrated, immense poise and finesse. Epic.
