Rivetto - Langhe Nebbiolo

Rivetto - Langhe Nebbiolo

Rivetto

A marriage of classic Nebbiolo structure, with a powerful build but a pleasant drinkability. Properly medium bodied, with spicy, rose petal aromas, deep red fruit and a whisper of oak. The palate is medium tannic, supple fruit, and a warming mouthfeel. It is typically, and perfectly Nebbiolo, but with a seriousness that surpasses its Langhe appellation. Thus, the value of this wine borders on Barolo rather than Langhe Rosso. A completely pleasurable Wednesday night Neb!
