90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2009
($132; from steep, south-facing 25-year-old vines in Neive; Rivetti bought this vineyard in 2006; bottled in July of this year with Rivetti's 2007 Barbaresco) Medium red. Dried rose and marzipan on the nose. A sweet and creamy style of 2006, but with firm underlying tannic structure and a calcaire element giving a savory quality to the strawberry and mineral flavors. Finishes with big, broad serious tannins. Complex rather than powerful, but there's no shortage of grip here. A very elegant style. Rivetti kept this longer in oak (new and once-used barriques) because it was a new wine for him and he wanted to see how it evolved.
