Rivetti Massimo Barbaresco 2014
BARBARESCO, baby! We love it --- can’t get enough OF it! And Rivetti?? One of the finest producers in the region, a small, organic, family-run winery with great press and dead-serious wines? At OUR PRICES? Now THAT is pure bliss and fulfillment!! OVER 50% OFF! Double 91 POINTS!
** Shoutout to Davide and his brother for hooking us up with super-fresh, just harvested white truffles on our visit last November -- one of our most memorable lunches EVER! **
Man -- Barbaresco at $22 is simply…dreamy. You can just inhale this perfumey aroma and let it percolate around in your brain. In the mouth it is so…HARMONIOUS, so balanced and fine. (inhales perfume again) --- ahhh, so where were we…amazing price, yes, but this mouthfeel and length...dried cherries, tart berries, rose water, Asian spices and flowers...oh baby! Delightful, enchanting, intellectual, charming and delicious…well, what else can we say except you NEED this brilliant stuff in your cellar and in your mouth ASAP! This will hold for a decade or more, too, if you can keep your hands off...we doubt it though…while it lasts!
