How to say it

Product guide note

Barbaresco comes from the northwest of Italy, and it is made from Nebbiolo which is the same grape variety used to make Barolo. This wine is a very approachable example which has a delicious floral aroma, and full of ripe juicy cherries and a twist of bitter almond on the palate.

Production information

Producer: Riva Leone

Produced and bottled in a state of the art winery in Priocco, Riva Leone is a fantastic example of modern Italian winemaking at its best.

The name Riva Leone is taken from the name of a wine merchant from Alba in Northern Italy, who at the beginning of 20th century decided to bottle the wine that he sold on tap to his clients.  The house portrayed in the label shows his shop in the countryside of Alba.
