Deep, bright ruby red with slight orange hues; expansive, clear-cut nose, with hints of violet, vanilla, cinnamon, sweet tobacco and licorice; very structured, soft mouth-filling taste with an appealing, long, spicy finish. Its structure gives this wine an exceptionally long cellar life, during which its tasting properties continue to develop.
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.
