Rivetto Nebbiolo Terracotta Vino Rosso

Rivetto Nebbiolo Terracotta Vino Rosso 2018

Langhe, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyYouthful, energetic, travelled Enrico Rivetto farms his family's estate with a philosophy beyond biodynamics (though they are the first Demeter certified winery in Barolo), and towards complete biodiversity. Entirely singular; nebbiolo was native fermented for 2 weeks on skins, racked from gross lees, then back on skins until June, for a total of 8 months in Italian amphora. Wild, grippy and bright with plum, wild rose, wild raspberry, cherry, and ample fine, concrete-grippy tannins, lead this haunting, ethereal wine to its lengthy, mineral finish. Exemplary wine, from a Piemontese visionary.Tasted: 12 September 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 59.95 consignment Producer: RivettoDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
