2017 Serafino Rivella 'Montestefano' Barbaresco, Piedmont, ITALY. 750ml

 

Tasting Teobaldo and Maria Rivella’s wine is like stepping back into PIemonte’s past, when the wines were perhaps less showy and immediate as they are today. Rivella crafts one of Barbaresco’s most unique and compelling wines from his holdings in the famed Montestefano cru. The sole Barbaresco here is made along super-traditional lines, and see several weeks on skins followed by about two and a half years in cask, which is long for Barbaresco. The gentle ageing produces a style of Barbaresco that empahsises the more savoury, gently oxidativeside of Nebbiolo over primary fruit. In addition to these two wines. ANTONIO GALLONI
