Single cru Barbaresco Riserva, one of the top wines in Rizzi's Barbaresco range. Fewer than than 3,200 bottles of the 2015 vintage of this wine were produced. The soil composition of the Boito vineyard is characterized by white marl clayey- calcareous. It is a deep soil with a clay vein that cuts within the whole hill, and that gives this wine great elegance, tannic structure, inimitable perfumes and great longevity.
Both Decanter and Wine Advocate rate the 2015 vintage of this wine highly (94 points), with the former describing it as “chocolately, forceful and very long” and the latter praising its “rich, concentrated style”.
"Full, brilliant carnet-red in color. It has clean-cut perfumes with notes of rose and a very crisp fruit, fine tobacco and mint, plus a slight whiff of licorice, black pepper and cloves. Its taste is full and mellow, very balanced, with a nice and rich tannic structure. It's a Barbaresco austere, masculine, muscular; a Barbaresco intended for long aging, and that will give great emotions, over the years." (From Winemaker)
