Rivetto - Leon Riserva Barolo DOCG

Rivetto

A selection of the most age worthy and elegant barrels of the vintage, blended to achieve an imposingly structured, impossibly complex expression of this quintessential region. Bark, balsamic, forest floor and mushroom aromas combine with the typical cherry, floral and tar notes expected. Laid on top of liquorice, and savoury herbs, it keeps unfurling. Adding spicy well-integrated oak and powerfully regal tannins, all slowly melding together to a fine point. There is a reason these are coveted, and reward patience. They are truly special.
