Santo Stefano di Nieve Riserva, B. Giacosa
1nl, 1lscl, 1nc, 1sdc
"The 1988 is the most advanced of these Santo Stefanos. It is fully mature, with notes of leather, tobacco, beef bouillon, prunes and spices on a medium-bodied frame with soft tannins and excellent length." (92pts Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate In the Cellar, April 2007)
"Out of this world. A triumph. Not very dark in color, but shows loads of smoky tobacco, grilled meat and ripe fruit. Full-bodied, with huge, ripe, velvety tannins and a finish that goes on for minutes. Seductive wine." (95 pts. James Suckling, Wine Spectator, Dec. 2000)
Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
