Babaresco

One of the supreme, yet more delicate version, of the great Piedmont wines from the Nebbiolo grape, our Rive Leone Barbaresco expresses complex earth and spice with a core of tart cherry fruit and rose petals.

Soil

Calcareous marls

Tasting notes

Its medium-garnet with a presence of a brick rim foreshadows the complex fruit, rose petal, earth and spice of the aroma. The palate is well framed and balanced with a viscous texture leading to a long complex finish.

Food pairings

Exceptionally paired with northern Italian cuisine, especially Fettuccini ai Funghi, roasted meats, aged cheeses and risotto.
Riva Leone was a man of unique character and personality who was an ambassador for the special wines of the Langhe all throughout Europe in the early 20th Century. His legacy lives on in our wines which uphold the winemaking traditions of Piedmont for a new generation of wine lovers across the world.
