PAOLO CONTERNO Barolo 'Riva del Bric' 2012

The 2012 'Riva del Bric' Barolo is a wonderful showing in this vintage. It instantly explodes with pretty aromas of ripe cherries and red berries along with dried floral, orange rind, licorice, minerals, spices. On the palate this is beautifully structured with nicely polished tannins and excellent balance all the way through the lingering finish. The Riva del Bric is quite appealing in its youth, but will surely continue to evolve gracefully with time. (Best 2017-2027) - July, 2016 (JD)
