Barolo, DOCG, Rocche Rivera, Figli Luigi Oddero, 2013

Lot: 1195 Supplier: AVENUE SRL. Country/Region: Italy/Piemonte Major Grape: Nebbiolo

The single vineyard site Rocche Rivera sits on a slope beneath Castiglione Falletto's castle walls, facing directly south. Vines are planted at 350 metres on grey-bluish marl soils with loose clay mixed with sand. Intense in colour, it has a mellow bouquet with depth, fruit and smoky notes. The 2013 is a concentrated wine with cherry menthol flavours and a succulent mid-palate. It is structured with youthful character and should continue to evolve. Grapes were picked in the first two weeks of October and carefully sorted in the vineyards prior to destemming. After fermentation in tank, it was matured for 36 months in medium and large oak casks.
