Reviews of purchase Rivella Serafino di Rivella Teobaldo, Dolcetto d'Alba DOC, 2017
Wine clean and bright garnet color.
Elegant wine gives a dry, complex, pleasantly warming taste of medium density with tangible tannins. Bright shades of raspberry and lingonberry complement alcoholized notes of cherry and spice. Moderately long finish marked nuances of earth and grass.
Wine has a fresh, deep flavor, filled with charming tones of rose petals, spices, berries and dark plums.
Wine will be a wonderful couple with ragout of hare and other game, it is fed to the red meat and mature cheeses.
Beautiful wine Rivella Serafino di Rivella Teobaldo, Barbaresco "Montestefano" born from Barbaresco grapes harvested in the vineyard Montestefano owned by the family for many years Rivella. 60-year-old vines, reaching 2 meters in height, have a 6-meter roots in calcareous soils, and provide a limited harvest. Vinification is made in the traditional style of Barbaresco. So maceration of the skin lasts for 15-25 days, fermentation takes place with natural yeasts in stainless steel tanks and partly in wooden barrels, aged wine in old boots from the Slavonic oak of 20 hectoliters for 24-36 months, 2 times longer than required by law.

Vineyard Montestefano, belonging to the family of Rivella, is famous for its dizzying slopes and white calcareous soils. Split it on the area of 2.5 hectares in close proximity to the house Teobaldo Rivella, which is located in the basement wine cellar. The berries of the Piedmont vineyard farming Rivella Serafino di Rivella Teobaldo produces only one wine at about 11,000 bottles a year. This is clearly insufficient, given its significant demand.
