Lot #501. Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Riserva Santo Stefano di Neive 1985

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 AG.
"The Santo Stefano is one of the most complete wines of the evening. It shows and outrageous, well-delineated nose of alcohol, roses, tar, licorice, and macerated cherries that continues to open in a never-ending display of sensations and aromas. Deceptively medium-bodied, the Santo Stefano is packed with masses of concentrated dark fruit, with superb length great overall balance, closing with a fresh finish that suggests it will continue to provide much enjoyment for years to come. Some tasters, myself included, mistook this for the Barolo Falletto." Vinous, Oct 2005
Provenance: The Nantais Cellar
Notes: Very lightly scuffed capsule, lightly scuffed label.
