Carlo Giacosa Barbaresco ‘Montefico’ | 2017

Importer NotesThe Montefico Cru in Barbaresco is shared by only a few producers in the region.  Donato Giacosa was among the first to plant here and shortly after a handful of regional king pins followed suit. The Giacosa’s manage a small acreage of vines here (1.36 hectares) and produce very small quantities.
