Rivetto Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d’Alba 2018

Serralunga, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyYouthful, energetic, travelled Enrico Rivetto farms his family's estate with a philosophy beyond biodynamics (they are the first Demeter certified winery in Barolo), and towards complete biodiversity. 
From three vineyards in Serra, Manocino, and San Bernardo, all in the eastern corner of Barolo, and at 340-420m, this was harvested in three stages over 45 days. This nebbiolo was destemmed and deseeded before native fermentation and 25 days maceration. The deseeding technique is one devised by Enrico to remove the bitter pips from the wine, providing a silkier, smoother wine. Silken cherries, fragrant raspberries are woven with ferrous notes, and glide along the finessed palate, with an easy lofty acidity, and fine, long tannins framing through the saline finish. This finessed wine is well knit and harmonious now, yet with time ahead.Tasted: 30 August 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
