Langhe Nebbiolo – 2016

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.

Strawberries and cherry essence, as well as dried raspberries.  Shows lovely roundness of tannins on the palate with some good intensity of fruit.  Medium body and a medium-chewy finish.  Drink now.
