Quick Facts

Montestefano is one of few Cru vineyards within the Barbaresco appellation, and it has always been considered producing long-lived wines. La Ca Novas version is not the most powerful expression out there, but instead is shows tremendous elegance and grace. Enjoyable young, majestic a few years down the road.

The Wine’s Story

“Montestefano is known for ample, rich Barbarescos, which is exactly what readers will find here”, is how Antonio Galloni describes this masterpiece. While we agree with his professional assessment, we would like to add depth and longevity as well. This wine provides serious backbone for cellaring, but as Marco’s idea of tannins means seductive sweetness, it’s accessible young as well. It’s very difficult to obtain serious quality from the tricky Nebbiolo grape, but we dare you to compare this bottling with basically anything else available in the marketplace.
