    The 2016 Barbaresco Montestefano is simply magnificent. Bright floral overtones and red/purplish berry fruit give the Montestefano a feeling of focus and explosive energy that is compelling. Hints of mocha, leather, smoke, lavender and a whole range of balsamic inflections open up in the glass, revealing a Barbaresco of power, structure and complexity. Ample in feel and yet wonderfully vibrant, the Montestefano is wonderfully complete. It is also one of the very best wines I have ever tasted from La Ca' Nova. The Montestefano is a bit more showy today than the Montefico, but both wines are remarkable. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

    In my opinion, La Ca’ Nova is the greatest estate in the Langhe that is completely under-the-radar. It will not be for long though. Pietro Rocca, is a fourth generation farmer, making Barbaresco’s that are terroir-driven while walking the fine line between finesse and structure. All of this starts in the vineyards where the grapes are allowed to reach optimal ripeness and the Rocca’s achieve this because they have two of Barbaresco’s top crus, Montestefano and Montefico. The vineyard of Montestefano is known for rich, ample wines with a dense mid-palate all working together to create a structured, age-worthy wine. This is a traditionalist that will not be unknown for much longer as the popularity of Barbaresco grows. Make sure to snap up both crus from this historic vintage!
