Rivella Serafino Barbaresco Montestefano 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Super complex on the nose with an array of medicinal, woodsy, mushroomy, root berry notes all framing the core of dark berry, cherry fruit. Opening just a touch on the soft side this quickly turns very clear and precise on the palate exhibiting a fresh, very pure core of stony, tart wild cherry with savory, slightly medicinal and licorice notes adding detail. This is very precise with lots of lift in the mouth in a tense and lean style. The ripe tannins add fine support and help to drive the persistence, dry small red berry flavors through the long finish. This is a bit on the earthy side, and perhaps not technically perfect but it is a very compelling wine. 91pts
