Massimo Rivetti Family Farm Barolo (DOCG) 2016 (Italy: Piedmont) (ID# 3702)

Name Massimo Rivetti Family Farm Barolo (DOCG) 2016 (ID# 3702)
Varietal Nebbiolo
Region Italy: Piedmont
Notes "The Massimo Rivetti 2016 Barolo is made with a selection of fruit from multiple sites. This vintage is subdued and restrained, offering subtle aromas of wild berry, crushed flower, candied orange peel, eucalyptus and crushed limestone. Despite that delicate approach to the nose, this Barolo is a lot more focused and determined on the palate. It offers a silky and linear mouthfeel with good length. Production is 5,000 bottles." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Made with organically farmed grapes, this opens with aromas of rose petal, incense and leather. The structured palate offers red cherry, licorice and cinnamon alongside youthfully austere fine-grained tannins. Drink 2025–2032." (Wine Enthusiast)
