La Ca Nova

Piedmont, Italy | website

We discovered this awesome Barbaresco house at Vinitaly and it amazed us with its pure fruit, intense concentration and long exuberant finish. There is something magical about the wines of La Ca Nova, run by three brothers Pietro, Giulio and Franco, who year after year capture the finest elements of the grapes from their 13 hectares to create wines that harness its purest varietal elements. Perhaps one of the most admirable qualities of these wines is that they manage to provide the quality and structure that one expects from a Barbaresco, but with a younger, more easily approach profile. Value for money, these are real gems, produced in only a limited amounts.


2011 La Ca Nova Barbaresco Montestefano Cru

"Deep, plush and resonant on the palate, the 2011 Barbaresco Montestefano is simply stunning. Smoke, new leather, savory herbs, incense and licorice wrap around a core of dark red and black fruit in this medium to full-bodied Barbaresco loaded with personality. Montestefano is known for ample, rich Barbarescos, which is exactly what readers will find here. These vines, which are 30-35 years of age, are the estate's oldest."
