The finest focus of the wines tasted here today, this is clean and taut, tight on entry with tightly packed fine tannins fanning out broadly on the palate. remaining quite fresh and crisp in the mouth with good acids, this is savory and tight right throu...

  • Rizzi Barbaresco Pajore 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Big aromas of burnished sIiced cherry fruit greets the nose along with spicy, almost peppery accents and soil tones that lends this an almost animale quality. With lovely fruit on the attack this shows off considerable power and gains nice balsamic spice notes on the midpalate but this feels a bit less full on the back end, tannins are very ripe...

  • Rizzi Barbaresco Boito Riserva 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Deep and powerful on the nose with huge perfumes, spicy and rich with great woodland aromas, pine needles, icy, mineral soil, a bit of pine bark, and dark, tobacco stained berry fruit. Already almost velvety on entry, this exhibits huge structure in the mouth with a poised and faceted feel along with compelling depth and perfume to the wild blac... Read More

  • Rizzi Barbaresco Pajore 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Powerful with great aromas of fresh fruit on the nose with hints of mulberry, sandalwood, spiced and flinty with an almost peachy note. In the mouth this is decidedly broad and a bit soft with supple tannins, though great acids adds some power and some weight to the rich raspberry fruit on the palate. the tannins build on the backend lending thi...

    Snoothrank:

    Already showing aromatic maturity on the nose this explodes from the glass with aromas of Crayon, damp soil, pine cone, dried raspberry, fine blond tobacco, cranberry and a bit of hightoned middle eastern spice. Still tight and focused on the palate with subtle spicy herb and sandalwood flavors on on entry, this opens on the midpalate to reveal ... Read More

  • Rizzi Barbaresco Boito 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Deeply burnished on the nose, with a hint of Chinato layered over dried cherries, a hint of ash and dried cherry wood. This is a big wine, a powerful wine, a bit dark and folded in on itself today but each layer seems distinct, fine and clear. Air brings out a mineral aspect on the palate with gentle medicinal tones that lead to a long finish wh... Read More

  • Rizzi Barbera d'Alba 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty on the nose with aromas of tight black fruit and wild flowers. Rich and fairly powerful on the palate, this shows off good acids supporting plenty of bright juicy fruit that gains a polished edge with air. Elegant for Barbera, there is great cut and energy on the palate here and good length with dark berry and tart plum fruit that is pur... Read More

  • Rizzi Dolcetto d'Alba 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty fruit on the nose has a decidedly balsamic cast to the very floral, raspberry fruit. Quite polished in the mouth, and a bit rich on the palate with fine grained tannins, and good supporting acids. Theres lots of bold, sweet fruit, as well as plenty of crunchy, crisp grape tannins that firms this up on the backend. Soft, broad and full of ... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    After tasting about 15 different wines, I ended with this. At this point it was ... ... Cru within the existing Rizzi Cru. It is a "Bricco" which means it is at the top of the hill.
