Vintage wine : Barolo Docg Vigna Rionda Riserva 2011
Ratings/Awards : 95

“The 2011 Barolo Vigna Rionda Riserva is an exuberant and expressive wine with dark cherry fruit, spice, tobacco and black truffle. There is a pretty earthy quality on hand that is delivered in an elegant and understated manner. What I like most about this wine is that it does not show evident signs of the warm summer growing season. Any extra fruit ripeness or sweetness is carefully tucked in at the back. Give this Riserva another ten years of bottle aging to let it flesh out further.” - Monica Larner
