Cellar/Tasting Notes "Dense, bold and beautiful, with notes of plush cherry, blackberry, clove, cinnamon, cola and dried rosemary. Polished, with a dusty, silky feel to the long finish."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The 2009 Barolo (aged three years in botte grande and one year in bottle) opens with a crystalline, ruby color and shows extreme focus and precision. Rosehip, forest berry, wild mint, lightly toasted pine nut, dried ginger and underbrush all appear on the ever-changing bouquet. The wine is..

Cellar/Tasting Notes "Blackberry, black currant and spice flavors hold court in this polished, international-style red. The tannins are dense, yet matched by sweet fruit, and the finish evokes tobacco and spice. Merlot and Sangiovese."

Cellar/Tasting Notes "Dark color, with an attractive intensity of raspberry, blackberry and new oak. Full-bodied, with focused yet tight fruit and supersilky tannins. Very refined and racy for a Syrah. Black pepper and dark fruits come out at the finish. Will develop beautifully in the bottle."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "This is a superb set of wines from Giorgio Rivetti. The 2008 Barbareschi are among the strongest wines of the year, while the 2007 Barolo Campe is the best wine to emerge from Rivetti’s vineyards in Grinzane Cavour. The La Spinetta style focusing on wines of great textural richness remains..
Cellar/Tasting Notes “Aromas of blueberries and minerals, with hints of flowers. Full body, with silky tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Chewy, yet polished.”
