Wine Rizieri, Nebbiolo d'Alba, 2015
This Nebbiolo is an excellent reflection of terroir and wine of origin. Apart from expressing familiar Nebbiolo characteristics, the wine also expresses great minerality, balance and the ageability one would expect from a premium Nebbiolo.
Red - This Nebbiolo is an excellent terroir expression and exhibits rich, intense aroma and layers of flavors.
Bright ruby-red with garnet reflections. Intense nose packed with rosehips, ripe red fruits and marinated cherries. Balsamic and spicy hints, powder, dark chocolate and hazelnut in the background. In the mouth, it is elegant, harmonious with good freshness, velvety tannins and a long finish. Perfect reflection of the variety of origin, it shares bouquet and elegance with the Barolo
Perfect combination with roasted or stewed meats. It is the noble compendium for the hand-made tajarin with white truffle of Alba. Excellent with aged cheeses.
