This gorgeous wine offers a rich bouquet of violets, wild cherries, ripe currants, licorice, and cinnamon. In the mouth, it is ripe, structured, and fragrant, with complex flavors of dried fruit, tobacco and leather. The firm acidity balances the round and full body. This is a substantial wine with ripe and harmonious tannins leading to a long, rich finish. Recommended with roasted and grilled meats, casseroles, polenta with sausages and mushrooms. Perfect with aged cheeses. A classic, impressive Barbaresco.

Wine AdvocateGiacosa-s 2004 Barbaresco Santo Stefano is a superb wine. Sweet, floral, mentholated aromatics meld into an expressive core of ripe fruit, with superb length and elegant tannins to round out the finish. Made in a more linear style than the Asili and Rabaja, it doesn-t possess the expansiveness of those two wines, but it does reveal tremendous depth, harmony and balance. This pure, sweet, long Barbaresco is the best Santo Stefano in years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022.

Wine Spectatorelivers subtle and focused aromas of crushed ripe strawberry, with hints of dried mushroom and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with big, juicy, velvety tannins and loads of ripe, sweet fruit. Needs time to come together. Voluptuous. Open. Best after 2011.
