    Reviews & Scores
    (Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco .Santo Stefano Riserva) was more forward and ripe with the nutty, leathery and gamy Nebbiolo characteristics taking center stage. There was also fireplace, brick, meat and soy. There were brown liqueur flavors that is best described as hedonistic and early maturing, a quality many feel is prevalent in a lot of 1988s in Italy. - JK

    Giacosa's 1988 Barbaresco Riserva Santo Stefano is a wine famously plagued by huge amounts of bottle variation, but this was as good an example as I have ever tasted. The next wine was one of Giacosa's all-time masterpieces, but a rare wine few have had the privilege to experience. - VM

    The 1988 Barbaresco-Santo Stefano is a deep ruby-colored, fragrant wine with intense aromas of cedar, cherry jam, tobacco, and herbs. Full-bodied and expansive, with layers of sweet fruit, this wine offers immediate appeal, but it promises to evolve gracefully for 10-20 years. The rich, thick fruit nearly obscures the tannin. It is a monument to the heights Nebbiolo can achieve! - WA
