Giordano owns the only parcel of Montestefano with a due south exposition. It is also the highest parcel. Produtorri di Barbaresco made this cru famous as a Riserva bottling. It's also worth noting that Montestefano and Montefico are the two most important vineyards on the eastern flank of Barbaresco. Montestefano sees a maceration time of 15-20 days and is fermented in stainless steel vats. The wine ages for at least 18-24 months in large (30-50 hectoliter) Slavonian oak barrels.
