Lobenberg: Lobenberg zu Montefico liegt zwar näher am Fluss Tanaro als die zuvor probierte Lage Rio Sordo, aber es liegt ein 200 Meter hoher Berg zwischen dem Weinberg und dem Fluss. Das heißt, es gibt eine totale Abschottung gegen den Tanaro und damit keine Einflüsse des kühlen, feuchten Flusses. Montefico ist eine sehr kleine Lage, sehr kompakt und komplett nach Süden exponiert. Es gibt nur fünf Hektar, die Reben stehen auf weißem Lehm. Insgesamt liefern nur drei Erzeuger die Trauben ab. Der Montefico ist das Gegenstück zum Rio Sordo, der so extrem fein, leicht und filigran ist. Montefico ist aufgrund seiner Lage, der Böden und der Hitze das komplette Gegenteil. Das ist die Power schlechthin. Und das im größten Jahr der Geschichte von Barbaresco. Die Nase ist verschlossen, aber intensiv. Es schiebt nicht mit komplexen Noten, sondern einfach mit satter, reicher, warmer Frucht. Mit viel Gerbstoff und Terroir, satter Lakritze, schwarzer Frucht, Holunder, Brombeere, Cassis und schwarzer Kirsche. Ganz viel Druck, aber nicht sehr differenziert, dafür ist er zu dicht. Im Mund ein Ereignis, ein Ereignis der dritten Art, weil es einfach so ein genialer Schub ist, der über die Zunge läuft. Massen von Salz, Massen von Gestein, Massen von ultrageschliffenem, aber sehr präsentem Tannin. Ich hatte kurz vorher den Barbaresco Rabaja von Giacosa, damit kann dieser Produttori locker mithalten. So eine brachiale Intensität, trotzdem ist der Wein das Gegenteil von rustikal. Es ist eine unglaubliche Feinheit, mit unglaublich Schub gleichermaßen. Bitte 10, 15 Jahre Zeit geben, vielleicht sogar 20. Das ist ein genialer Barbaresco mit langem Leben. 97-100/100 *** Die Lage Rio Sordo liegt im Süden des Barbaresco-Gebiets, Richtung Treiso. Es ist eine überwiegend sandige, nach Süden exponierte Lage, mit ein bisschen Lehm-Einsprengseln. Ein Tal, das direkt vom Fluss Tanaro hochläuft, hat großen Einfluss. Insgesamt ist Rio Sordo eher eine leichtere, verspieltere Lage innerhalb der Crus von Barbaresco. Nur zwei Winzer liefern die Trauben für den Wein ab. 2016 ist das Jahr der Jahre bisher im Piemont. Aber es ist ein Jahr für die Ewigkeit, ein Jahr, um darauf zu warten. Für mich persönlich ist 2017 in Barbaresco für die nächsten 10, 15 Jahre eindeutig das spannendere Jahr. Es ist aromatischer, feiner, seidiger. Aber 2016 ist natürlich extrem klassisch. Die Nase des 2016er Rio Sordo ist sehr verschlossen, wie ein Baukasten. Links, rechts, oben, unten – ganz sauber definiert. Lakritze, rote, schwarze Frucht, ganz sauber geschnitten, wie aus einem Block. Im Mund dann deutlich feiner rüberkommend. Das Tannin ist zwar sehr präsent, total seidig, nichts Bäuerliches, aber eben präsent. Für Minuten stehend, immer wieder hochrollend mit grandioser Frische, mit Tanninen und Terroir, vom Sandigen kommend, also ganz fein. Extrem verspielter Barbaresco, der aber mindestens fünf, besser zehn Jahre Zeit braucht, um zu seiner großen Stärke zu finden. Und das wird ganz sicher eine totale Verspieltheit sein. Ein wunderschöner Riserva. Kein Riese, aber einfach nur schön – wenn man ihm zehn Jahre Zeit gibt. 95-96/100 *** Muncagota liegt auf der Spitze eines Hügels, von Barbaresco Richtung Neive gehend. Es ist die höchste Lage überhaupt in Barbaresco, an die 400 Meter. Komplett kühl und windig, nach Osten exponiert. Die Böden bestehen aus weißem Lehm. Ein Extrem! Die Nase ist fast leicht, aber aromatisch. Mehr rote als schwarze Frucht, nur ein kleiner Hauch Lakritze und Veilchen. Sehr ätherisch. Fast rasiermesserscharfer Mund. Die Frische ist überwältigend, die Säure ist grandios. Der Wein hallt mit seiner großen Frische und Feinheit lange nach. Er hat nicht ganz diese spielerische Leichtigkeit wie der Rio Sordo, er hat mehr Kraft, was am weißen Lehm liegt. Aber er ist trotzdem tänzelnd und hat eben diese Säure der Morgensonne. Ihm fehlt die Wucht des Montefico, oder positiv ausgedrückt: er hat nicht diese Belastung, sondern das Spielerische, zusammen mit der Kraft aus dem weißen Lehm. 94-95+/100

Parker über: Sammlerbox: Barbaresco Riserva 2016 (9 Flaschen) (9 Flaschen)

-- Parker: The Produttori del Barbaresco 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Asili (with 9,029 bottles produced) is distinguished by its elegance and the very smooth and silky delivery of fruit managed here. Seamless transitions are made between wild berry, blue flower, limestone, earth and crushed stone. The wine is expertly stitched together and ever so polished and glossy, just like a ruby gemstone. The Conti, Lembo and Viglino families take credit for supplying the Asili fruit for this blend. 97/100 *** This Riserva pours from the bottle with a medium dark appearance, showing more color saturation and fruit concentration than the other wines in this series. The Produttori del Barbaresco 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Montefico (with 10,136 bottles released) is a wine of power and density, and you sense this clearly in the aromatic determination and heft delivered here. (Like the other Riservas in this group, it clocks in at a 15% alcohol content.) The fruit tones veer toward dark purple and black, with plum and wild blackberries. There are earthy tones as well, with potting soil and iron ore. This wine plays its cards of volume and width with an expert hand, thanks to a blend of fruit from the vineyards of the Casetta, Grasso, Rocca and Vacca families. 97/100 *** This is usually the last wine in this series of nine, representing the most powerful and concentrated side of the Nebbiolo spectrum as interpreted by Produttori del Barbaresco. The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano (with 12,516 bottles released) is rich and darkly saturated, with a plush and opulent bouquet that is redolent of red berry, dried raspberry and candied orange peel. This is a blend of fruit from vineyards owned by the Gonella, Maffei, Marcarino, Rivella, Rocca and Vacca families. You feel the density of the wine on the palate, thanks to firm tannins and lots of extra fruit weight and texture. Despite that extra muscle (and the usual 15% alcohol content), Montestefano also shows a soft and especially enriched personality. 98/100 *** With exactly 16,090 bottles made, the Produttori del Barbaresco 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello is another stellar experience in this series of nine single-vineyard Riserva wines from Barbaresco's most successful wine cooperative. The Ovello is quite sharp and defined in terms of its aromas of wild cherry, dried violet and powdered licorice. Those mineral tones are very clear in this classic vintage. However, the Ovello finishes on a slightly softer note (compared to the Pajè) with a finer and more approachable tannin. The blended fruit for this cru is supplied by the Audasso, Cavallo, Cravanzola, Gonella, Grasso, Maffei, Odore, Sarotto, Unio, Vacca and Varaldo families. 96/100 *** Starting off this tasting of new Riservas from Produttori del Barbaresco is the 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Pora. This is a beautifully elegant and silky wine with a soft entry of wild berry fruit, lilac and wild rose. The bouquet opens gracefully with a fluid, slow-building intensity that feels silky and delicate to all the senses. It holds back from showing any overt or determined level of power, remaining instead silky and smooth throughout. It treads quietly and softly. Production is 13,403 bottles, and fruit is sourced from the Dellaferrera and Manzone family vineyards. I came back to this wine 24 hours after the bottle was open and added one more point to my score. 95/100 *** Rabajà is known for its precision and extreme balance, and these qualities are especially pronounced in this excellent vintage. The Produttori del Barbaresco 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Rabajà is a gorgeous wine, and one that is offered at an unbelievably low price, especially considering the quality and depth you are given here. Sheer elegance is the impression you get upon first inspection, and the bouquet opens gradually to embrace wild berry, cherry, white stone, light spice, tar and hint of toasted hazelnut. Quite a few families contribute fruit for this blend: Antona, Arossa, Bianco, Casetta, Lembo, Lignana, Manzone, Vacca and Vezza. 12,826 bottles were made this vintage. 98/100 *** The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo takes it up a notch if you consider the tasting of each one of these single-vineyard wines tasted in order. With the Rio Sordo, you really start to feel the textural richness and fruit weight that can be achieved with Nebbiolo in a great vintage. This vintage is compact and tightly woven together, suggesting a forecast for an extra long drinking window. The Alutto and Marengo families farm the fruit used in this blend. This wine will live long, and I love that touch of candied licorice that appears on the close (especially when you come back to the open bottle 24 hours later). Production is 11,355 bottles. 96/100 *** The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Muncagota stands out in this group of nine for the slightly more mineral-driven definition on the bouquet and the bigger textural impact and structure of the mouthfeel. There is plenty of wild fruit and cherry, but the wine's aromas also veer toward crushed stone, iron ore, spice and candied orange peel. You feel the impact on the palate, thanks to integrated tannins, freshness and an elegant dose of fruit or phenolic weight. Fruit for this wine is sourced from vineyards owned by the Bellora, Lignana and Viglino families. Production for Muncagota in this vintage is 11,157 bottles. 96/100 *** The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Pajè (with only 6,423 bottles released) shows contoured lines and elegant sharpness, with cherry and cassis that segue to smoke, tar and licorice. This wine is beautifully pristine and targeted in terms of its aromatic delivery. Nothing falls by the wayside. That neat, tucked-in personality also distinguishes the wine in terms of mouthfeel, with firm structure, tannins and taut fruit tension. Pajè shows exceptionally well in this vintage. The Basso and Giordano family vineyards supply the fruit in this Riserva. 95/100

Winespectator über: Sammlerbox: Barbaresco Riserva 2016 (9 Flaschen) (9 Flaschen)

-- Winespectator: Pure, exuding rose, cherry, strawberry, currant, mineral and wild juniper aromas and flavors. Intense and driven by the vibrant structure. The tannins are present yet refined, finishing long and resonant. A contrast of power and finesse. Best from 2025 through 2045. From Italy. 97/100 *** There is some weight and richness to this red, allied to cherry and plum flavors. Flourishing notes of iron, tobacco and black pepper add detail, while the dusty, nervous tannins emerge on the long finish. Shows more structure today, yet this has all the components in the right place. Best from 2025 through 2047. 96/100 *** The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano is another profound wine in this lineup. There is virtually no perception of tannin, as the fruit is so rich and so voluptuous. Dark cherry/plum fruit, spice, menthol, licorice and a whole range of balsamic inflections grow as the Montestefano shows off its class. This profound Barbaresco will thrill readers for years to come. 98/100 *** Dynamic. Singed by licorice, the plum, black cherry, tar and iron flavors are dense and tightly packed with the solid structure. The fruit component offers great purity and an intense midpalate, followed by a strong grip of tannins on the finish. Best from 2025 through 2045. 96/100 *** Opulent, this red combines cherry, plum, tar and tobacco flavors with a round profile. Menthol and wild herb accents emerge as do the muscular tannins on the finish. Overall, this is balanced and built for the long haul. Best from 2025 through 2043. 95/100 *** This red is saturated with bright cherry, strawberry and currant fruit. Mint, iron, tar and green, vegetal elements peek through as this evolves on the palate through the long finish. Assertive tannins put the grip on the finish, yet the intense fruit will come forward with time. Best from 2025 through 2045. 95/100 *** There is purity and definition to the rose, cherry, strawberry and spice aromas and flavors in this red. Draped on an elegant profile, with a terrific mineral underpinning. Harmony and finesse renders this red approachable now, yet this will improve with a few years of aging. Best from 2025 through 2047. From Italy. 97/100 *** Eucalyptus, cut hay and licorice accent the cherry, plum and mineral flavors in this suave red. Firm and powerful, with assertive, nervous tannins and vibrant acidity. A bit jumbled today, yet there is energy and length on the finish indicating its future potential. Best from 2025 through 2045. 95/100 *** Balsamic notes of juniper, eucalyptus and pine align with floral, cherry and black currant flavors in this supple, well-structured red. Balanced and long, with a lingering aftertaste of rose, cherry and mineral. Best from 2024 through 2043. 95/100 *** Fresh hay, sage and tamarind aromas introduce this juicy red. Flavors of strawberry, cherry and tobacco hold court as the dense structure peeks through the minerally finish. This strikes a nice balance between fleshiness, fruit, acidity and tannins. Best from 2024 through 2043. 95/100

Galloni über: Sammlerbox: Barbaresco Riserva 2016 (9 Flaschen) (9 Flaschen)

-- Galloni: The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Asili marries power and sensuality the way only Nebbiolo can. Soaring aromatics, beautifully pliant red-toned fruit and tons of pure depth emerge in a stunning Barbaresco that captivates all the senses. Silky, refined and exceptionally beautiful, the 2016 is quite simply one of the most complete Asilis I have tasted from the Produttori. It is an unforgettable wine. 97/100 *** The 2016 Barbaresco Montefico is a jewel of a wine. Freshly cut flowers, minerals, crushed rocks, rose petal and lavender are all finely cut. As always, the Montefico is tense and chiseled in style. Its sense of transparency is simply beguiling. Sage, mint and sweet pipe tobacco are some of the nuances that linger. The Montefico is a Barbaresco that will thrill readers who enjoy taut reds. It blends the fruit richness of the Montestefano with the verve of Ovello. 98/100 *** The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello is the most severe and angular of these wines. It will appeal most to die-hard classicists. Chalk, white pepper, mint and sweet red cherry fruit all grace this chiseled, beautifully translucent Barbaresco. As always, the Ovello needs a number of years in bottle to reveal its charms, which in 2016 are many. It is a positively stellar wine in every way. 97+/100 *** The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is a brooding wine, its mid-weight structure notwithstanding. Iron, smoke, tobacco, cedar and dried flowers add a feral, earthy quality that is so appealing. Pora is often one of the more approachable Riservas in this range, but the 2016 is an exception. Readers should be prepared to cellar it for at least a few years. 95/100 *** The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Rabajà is brooding in its intensity. Swaths of tannin, acid and mineral notes infuse the 2016 with striking gravitas. A wine of staggering proportion and breathtaking beauty, the Rabajà is the sort of wine I wish every Vinous reader could taste because it captures the essence of place and vintage with so much pedigree and so much class. Black cherry, sage, crushed rocks, menthol and lavender are some of the many nuances that linger on the eternal finish. 98/100 *** The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo is a serious, somber wine. Black cherry, plum, lavender, spice and menthol show off the darker side of Nebbiolo to great effect. In most vintages, Rio Sordo is an easygoing wine, but not in 2016. Readers will find a potent, brooding yet mid-weight Barbaresco that screams with character. What a way to start this tasting! 94/100 *** The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Muncagota continues this tasting of frankly awe-inspiring wines. Rich, deep and super-expressive, the 2016 hits all the right notes. Black cherry, plum, spice, leather, licorice emerge, but only with great reluctance. The Muncagota is another wine in this range that clearly needs time. 94+/100 *** The 2016 Barbaresco Pajè opens with deeply pitched spice notes that are so alluring. Pliant and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2016 possesses tremendous density and brawn. Blue/purplish fruit, cloves, lavender and menthol infuse this rich, hedonistic Barbaresco with tons of character. The tannins are present, but they are nearly buried by the sheer density of the fruit. In a word: impressive. 96/100
