    Medium amber-edged red. Subtly perfumed nose of cherry, redcurrant, dried flowers and camphor. Sweet, supple and refined; solidly structured, even a bit tough, for Barbaresco, but already very aromatic in the mouth. Much longer and more impressive on the back end than the Asili.

    Medium red. The most successful of these 1999 Barbarescos, the Santo Stefano offers much vibrancy and freshness in its suggestions of roses, spices, tobacco, smoke, menthol, scorched earth and red cherries. It displays excellent length and purity of expression in a less opulent style than the 2000 or 2001. This deceptively medium bodied, structured Barbaresco shut down quickly in the glass. It will be at it best after another few years of bottle age and should drink well until at least age 20. A Casa Vinicola Bruno Giacosa bottling.
