Rivetto Barolo Serralunga d'Alba 2009
Wine EnthusiastThis straightforward Barolo offers classic Nebbiolo aromas of dried rose petal, forest floor and ripe cherry. The palate delivers bright cherry and berry flavors, with hints of balsamic herbs and a subtle layer of carob. This is still young and tannic, but has surprising freshness for the vintage. Drink after 2015.
Wine SpectatorA rich, open-knit style, sporting cherry, currant and tobacco notes, with grainy tannins on the finish. Balanced, but will need a few years to integrate fully. Best from 2016 through 2030. 2,000 cases made.
