Alessandro Rivetto makes two Barbaresco wines, both with grapes from the Montersino vineyard.
For his classic Barbaresco DOCG they use clusters from the west side of the vineyard, which get sun until evening.
Here the soil is slightly darker and gives body to the wine, making it already ready to drink with the canonical 18 months of aging in wood and the 12 in the bottle, as the specification requires.
Because the soil is richer in water and less steep than on the south side, it differs from Barbaresco DOCG Montersino in that the vine “is a bit more comfortable” and the aromas are less pronounced.
Still, it remains an excellent, austere and extremely versatile wine.
It is ruby red, with slight garnet hues.
We mentioned that it is less fragrant than Barbaresco DOCG Montersino: do you still detect ripe cherries, tea leaves, rose petals and mineral notes?
Severe, ripe tannins, fresh acidity and round, feminine structure.
It is incredibly fine, balanced and the finish is long and persistent.
Alessandro calls it the best wine for the whole meal, even if it’s rather expensive.
You can also pair it with dessert, but the right kind: choose hazelnut cake.
It’s your guy if…
…Sometimes you want to pamper yourself and give yourself a special treat during even an ordinary, no-frills lunch.
