The 2019 Barbaresco Montersino marries elegance with power. Sweet wild cherry, tobacco, cedar, mint, spice and dried flowers open first, followed by a kick of Nebbiolo acids and tannin that make themselves felt on the mid-palate and finish. Complex and beguiling, the Montersino has a lot to say in 2019. There's real depth here, not to mention tons of character. Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
