Barbaresco, Italy

"The 2018 Barbaresco “Rizzi” from the Dellapiana family is an absolutely beautiful young wine, with superb purity and transparency down to its underlying terroir. Most of the vines in this twelve hectare vineyard were planted in 1967, though some younger vines were planted here also in 2013. The lovely bouquet of the 2018 wafts from the glass in a blend of cherries, rose petals, gamebird, curry, complex soil tones, anise and a topnote of wood smoke. On the palate the wine is deep, full bodied and ripe, with a sappy core of fruit, lovely soil signature, ripe, firm tannins and a long, tangy and complex finish. This is still a young wine, but it has all of the pieces in place to be a superb drink once it starts to blossom." 93+/100 - John Gilman, August 2021
