BEST OF YEAR 2001
The Top 100 Wines of the Year
92 Monti 1999 Barbera d'Alba
Barbera has an uneven record, can be quite impressive, and this is a fine example.
From the opening not finish, it offers loads of cherry, spice and vanilla.
Well-balanced, with mec tannins and good acid, this handsomely crafted wine should provide great the next two to six years.
