Deep garnet in color, intoxicating aromas of purple fruits and wild flowers are underscored by notes of cherries, roses, and baking spices. On the palate, it is elegant, with a long spicy finish. This wine manages to be weightless and intoxicating at the same time. Pairs well with slow-roasted beef, demi-glaces, grilled pork and apples, and Beef Wellington.

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Barbaresco Albesani Santo Stefano unfurls on the palate with layers of highly expressive dark fruit. Hints of menthol, smoke, incense, leather and tobacco appear later, adding considerable depth and complexity. A plush, open finish rounds things out in style. Though fresher than the straight bottling, the Santo Stefano is also remarkably open today. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2024.

Wine EnthusiastBarbaresco Santo Stefano is a linear and silky expression of Nebbiolo, with pretty aromas of dried raspberry and smoke. It shows elegance and a bright, lively finish.

Wine SpectatorSpicy, this shows black pepper and underbrush flavors, coming off stiff and astringent. Best from 2015 through 2023. 1,660 cases made.
