Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

The 2000 Barbaresco Santo Stefanetto, dark in color and intense in aroma, suffers from an excessive oakiness in this phase of its development, and the oak tannins give a slight hardness to the texture, though there is more extract and concentration than in Bricco Mondino. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2014.(Daniel Thomases)

Wonderful nose of ripe plum, berry, Indian spice and milk chocolate. Full-bodied, with soft, round tannins and beautiful fruit, showing hints of cedar underneath. Gorgeous. Best after 2009. 500 cases made. (James Suckling)

Full deep red-ruby. Deep aromas of raspberry and redcurrant liqueur and menthol; showed a roasted ripeness, more oak spice and a hint of rusticity with aeration. Then bigger and richer than the Borgese, with darker fruit flavors and notes of truffle, licorice and menthol. Finishes with fairly dense, slightly drying tannins. Needs a couple years of additional time in bottle.
