Type Red Vintage 2012 Producer Rivetto Appellation Piedmont Country Italy Drink by 2023 Pour at 65° Dry 0
A special selection of the Barolos from Rivetto. A wine that expresses its best over the long term. Aged for 5 years, the Leon Riserva is the “essence” of Barolo. The extra years of aging guarantees a greater smoothness and intense, rich bouquet. Exceptionally refined, this wine has a strong tannin profile and is at its best after 15-20 years. With a dark cherry and tarry nose, this wine is best known for its mature palate.
Type Red Vintage 2017 Producer Château L’escadre AppellationBordeaux Country France Drink by 2023 Pour at 65° Dry 0
Where to start – this classic Bordeaux is amazing! First of all, it is the most epic vintage in 50 years and is aged 16 months in French oak barrels. The color is an intense ruby and the aromas (aka “the noe”) are of ripe fruit. Before you take your first sip, let the wine breath and open up, so you can fully experience the elegance and depth of this powerful wine. A favorite among our tasting team…Salute!
