(just the third vintage from these 30-year-old south-facing vines; aged in a few new barriques and the rest 600-liter barrels): Medium red. Dark berries, graphite, mint and violet on the fruity nose. Fresh, perfumed and energetic, with good cut to the dark berry, floral and tobacco flavors. The building tannins are firm and serious but not dry. Doesn't have quite the body or power of Rivetti's other Barbarescos but made in an elegant style. Rivetti says it's half the price of his other Barbarescos.
