Barbera d’Alba – 2017

Region: italy - piedmont


Nestled at the very top of the impressively steep, vine-clad hills of the Treiso zone of Barbaresco, the winery’s vineyards were planted as early as the 1960’s in the white marl, calcareous soil typical of this area. An impressive selection of cru Barbaresci is punctuated by the spectacular Vigna Boito  located at the peak of the Rizzi cru. The estate is managed entirely by the Dellapiana family with son Enrico as winemaker and viticulturist. Rizzi Winery participates in “The Green Experience” project which mandates guidelines for environmentally sustainable production.

This shows lots of bright fruit and orange peel on the nose and palate. It’s medium-bodied with fine, integrated tannins and a bright finish. Lively and crisp, as well as creamy. Drink now.
