Tasting Notes
The Barbaresco Rio Sordo Riserva, produced in exceptional vintages only,
is the result of Carlo’s desire to make a wine that is already expressing its
best when it goes to market, but will continue to improve as it ages. The
nose maintains its personality related to the cru but adds elegant notes
like sweet tobacco and licorice that only a great Nebbiolo can express
after many years. A perfect pair with braised veal dishes, red meat or
aged cheese.

Tasting Notes
The Barbaresco di Rio Sordo is the best expression of our vineyards.
Grapes from this cru have always been the most sought after due to the
unmistakable balsamic character released to the wines, giving them
great personality. Still today its aroma profile is defined by eucalyptus
and wild mint notes, with precise hints of wild berries, cherry, plum, all
together giving an elegant and complex nose. Its deep, long tannins
weave together with great concentration, giving a wonderful mouth
feel that is persuasive and encompassing. A perfect pair with braised
veal dishes, red meat or aged cheese.
