Barbacarlo

Oltrepò Pavese, Lombardia

Montebuono

1997

Montebuono, like the classic Barbacarlo blend has some Croatina, Uva Rara and Ughetta, but there is also a little Barbera in the mix. The vineyards sit next to each other and while the vines here are also up to around a hundred years old and planted over tufo, the site is a little less steep than Barbacarlo. This is a slightly richer, fuller expression of Montebuono, with gentle tannins and an abundance of dark fruits still very much at the fore.
