Massimo Rivetti Barbaresco Froi 2017
Nebbiolo | Italy
“Froi” is the name for the vineyards surrounding a central farm house on the hill of Serraboella, one of the top sites for world-class nebbiolo. We LOVE the Rivetti family with unbounded enthusiasm – their commitment to organic and biodynamic farming, their love of food (lunch there is a next-level experience), and their truly delicious, serious wines. Barbaresco is one of the great values on earth (for the moment) and with our price, there is no better time to try the Rivetti family’s awesome Froi bottling!
Beautiful, perfumey nose of roses, red plums, sweet pomegranate, spice, black tea, and sweet herbs (thyme is right!)! So good, so light on the palate, in a pinot noir kind of way, with enormous flavors and perfume. Wow!! ONLY 20 CASES!
