Rizzi Barbaresco 2016
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco|
Wild berry, menthol, herb and leather aromas take center stage along with star anise. The tightly wound palate reflects the nose, showing red cherry, pomegranate, licorice and tobacco alongside fine-grained tannins and racy acidity that create a firm finish.
bit too ripe in my opinion, even in this 2016 vintage. This wine offers a soft and delicate side that is expressed with sweet fruit, spice, licorice and tar. This wine is firm and ultimately the most elegant. It could be served right away with a dish of veal-filled agnolotti.
