BARBARESCO "RIZZI"

“The classicism of the Barbaresco” 

 

The Barbaresco wine is produced from Nebbiolo grapes harvested in the Crü Rizzi. The Rizzi Cru is extensive, so it is not surprise that within it, there are substantial variations for characteristic of the soil, exposure and altitude. It’s for this that our Barbaresco is so particular, and the Rizzi hill is incontestably one of the most famous in the Langhe area.
