Alessandro Rivetto – Barbaresco DOCG 2018 Montersino, Alba

On the nose it offers gourmandize, good maturity as well as a fine concentration. It reveals notes of fairly ripe plum, cornflowers and more slightly crushed raspberry associated with small touches of fig as well as discreet hints of sweet blond tobacco and a subtle hint of toast. On the palate it is fruity and offers freshness, juiciness, minerality, a fresh / tangy frame, roundness, generosity as well as volume. The wine expresses notes of pulpy / juicy raspberry, bright currants and more slightly fleshy red plum associated with touches of cornflowers, pulpy small fruits, fine hints of tobacco as well as a discreet hint of vanilla and nutmeg. The tannins are well-built. Good length. Presence of a hint of good bitterness and a subtle chew on the finish / persistence.
