Review:
Aromas of plums and berries with hints of flowers. Medium body, tight and chewy tannins and a delicious finish. There’s reserve and finesse to the structure. Drink from 2022.

Review:
The 2015 Barolo Riva del Bric is radiant, rich and enveloping, and yet retains a gorgeous sense of Nebbiolo classicism. Macerated cherry, red plum, mocha, wild flowers, spice and new leather all flesh out in a sumptuous, wonderfully expressive Barolo. With a bit of air, the 2015 is exquisitely delicious now, but it will be even better in a few years' time. The 2015 is bold and juicy, but not overdone.
