Region: Alba, Piedmont, Italy

Varietal: 100% Barbera

Tasting notes: This Barbera shows you the harmonious side of the terroir. It is well structured, fine and linear to the last note. The color is ruby red with clear crimson highlights. It has a bouquet of blackberry and sour plum, with light vinous notes. The body is balanced and the high acidity makes the wine fresh and gastronomic.

Producer: The Rizzi winery is one of the most solid and reliable production facilities in Barbaresco, the result of various Cru interpreted as a symbol of Piedmontese classical tradition. Rizzi, Nervo, Pajorè, Vigne Boito: vineyards that have a perfect exposure, so as to give life to classic and deep wines. 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.

Vineyard and Winemaking: 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. The walls of the Rizzi Farmhouse are ancient and tell stories of the past and tradition that starts from the distant '700, a period that dates back to the building, and that goes up to the present day, passing from generation to generation.
