Arnaldo Rivera Barolo Monvigliero 2017
Made from selected grapes from 4 plots in the heart of the Monvigliero vineyard in Verduno, where the vines grow in a light, chalky clay soil on south-facing slopes at an altitude of 250 metres. After gentle fermentation, the wine is aged in large new French oak barrels for 32 months and 6 months in the bottle. The result is an extremely charming Barolo with a beautiful ruby red colr, fruity aromas with floral hints and elegant underlying notes of black pepper, clove and crushed limestone, characteristic of Monvigliero's terroir. The wine has a lovely silky smooth structure in the mouth. The spicy and mineral notes are echoed in the delicate flavor with fresh, ripe red berry fruit.
