Barbaresco Rivella Serafino Montestefano 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Earthy, leathery, and perhaps a little bretty on the deep, rich and high toned nose full of wild herbs, flowers, minerals and gorgeously framed fruit.Opening with a decidedly woodsy flavor profile this quickly shows off its seamless character showing fine structure and excellent integration in a totally old school style. This could have been made in 1978. Today it is a bit bricky already, and broad on the palate with an incipient gamy edge to the dark cherry fruit. This is a beautiful wine and a window into the past. I expect this will age very well. 93pts

This is one of the classiest wine I have tasted so far this year!This Barbaresco is perfectly balanced with fine floral notes,charming red fruit and fresh walnut aromatics jumping out of the glass.
