Anna Savino

Location: San Lazzaro Saluzzo, 12

Transplanted from Napa to PIemonte Italy... I blog for a passion about food, wine, and Italian culture. For now just discovering Piemonte one step (sip) at a time with big dreams to do wine tours in Italy. Hopefully I can help with any travel/wine ?'s!

FAVORITE PIEMONTE REDS

6. Rizzi Barbaresco Boito (2006)

« Prev 6 of 6
After tasting about 15 different wines, I ended with this. At this point it was hard for me to pinpoint aromas and flavors but this wine was the one that definitely WOWED me. A bit more masculine, muscular, powerful. Can be aged up to 20 years I think! The Boito Cru is almost like a Grand Cru within the existing Rizzi Cru. It is a "Bricco" which means it is at the top of the hill. The soil is calcareous and has more clay than the rest of the larger Cru giving it more complex and deeper qualities!
