The flagship 2015 Barbaresco Montestefano is powerful, dense and also closed in on itself. Then again, that is Montestefano. It will be interesting to follow the 2015 and see if it emerges from its current shut-down stage. To be sure, these wines have often been much showier than they are today. Smoke, cured meats, incense, licorice and tobacco add the closing shades of nuance. (AG) 91+
