Ripe strawberry and milk chocolate aromas, with hints of cedar, lead to a full body, with lots of fruit and a velvety-textured finish. A juicy young wine. Best after 2011. 500 cases made. –JS Wine Spectator rating...91 points
|Wine maker notes
|Barbaresco Rio Sordo is made only with our best grapes, resulting in a top quality example of wine from this region.
For many years the grapes grown in the Rio Sordo cru have demanded a high market price because they give an uncommon balsamic character to the wine. Together with the balsamic notes, you find berry, cherry and plum; the tannins are deep, powerful, sweet and round. Barbaresco Rio Sordo is an elegant wine that marries well with every kind of savory meat dish, as well as aged cheeses…a wine to be enjoyed in good company!
