"Abrigo's 2004 Barbaresco Vigna Montersino reveals a deep, powerful expression of scorched earth, tar, smoke and dark fruit on a large-scaled frame. It offers notable intensity and a generous, supple, if somewhat quirky, personality with excellent length and well-integrated tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018." -91 points- Antonio Galloni- Wine Advocate

"This Barbaresco is from the Montersino vineyard in Treiso (300 m. above sea level), facing south-west. Fermentation is done by soft pressing of the grapes, followed by maceration on the skins for 6-10 days at a maximum temperature of 30°C. The wine is then drawn off and racked into small, new oak barrels, where it matures for 12-15 months. After clarification, the wine is bottled without filtration. Store lying down in cool surroundings."

"Ruby-red, with a rich, complex bouquet hinting at vanilla and red fruit, together with sweet and spicy elements resulting from the wood. Smooth at first on the palate, the big tannins then make it slightly harder, with excellent ageing potential. Recommended serving temperature: 16-18°C." -Winery
