"Highly recommended! Gorgeous aromas of blackberries, cherries and plums with a light hint of spice. Full-bodied, with round and velvety tannins and a long, luscious finish. A beauty. Hard not to drink now for its beautiful balance and harmony.” (Dec 2005)

"The 2000 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano is a deeper, darker wine. Sweet balsamic notes add complexity to a dark core of fruit as the Montestefano opens up. It shows gorgeous mid-palate sweetness, plenty of depth and a round, sensual personality with quite a bit more power than the Montefico. The Montestefano repeatedly showed poorly when it was first released. Today, that once awkward wine has grown into a beautiful Barbaresco.” (Dec 2005)
