Garnet red colour. Intense and complex bouquet with notes reminiscent of violet, liquorice and raspberry. Its flavour is full and robust with tannic texture. Wine of great personality that in the best vintages can bear the denomination "Riserva" on the label.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Barbaresco Santo Stefano is striking in its beauty. This firm, structured wine bursts from the glass with layers of dark red fruit, spices, flowers and menthol. Medium in body, the wine possesses notable inner beauty in a transparent, almost weightless style. There is superb pedigree here, not to mention tons of class. Once again the Santo Stefano bottling delivers the goods. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025.

Wine SpectatorPerfumed and very beautiful, with strawberry and flowers. Subtle. Starts off slowly and builds to a full body, with chewy yet silky tannins and a focused, delicate chocolate, berry and light vanilla aftertaste. To be released spring 2009. Best from 2009 through 2013.
