Rizzi’s Boito vines lie in the upper part of their Rizzi Cru where the soils have more clay, giving a muscular and structured wine for long term ageing. The wine is aged in large Slavonian casks for 18 -21 months followed by at least 30 months in bottle before release.
“The Rizzi 2015 Barbaresco Rizzi Riserva Vigna Boito features the artwork of proprietor Enrico Dellapiana on the front label. With only 3,176 bottles produced, the wine reveals broad shoulders, width and impressive depth. This vintage offers a complete picture of the Nebbiolo grape and of the distinctive elegance of Treiso, one of the cornerstones of the Barbaresco appellation. This Riserva offers a solid center of gravity with ample fruit rendering and framing. The vintage achieves a richer, more concentrated style that suits the wine very nicely.” 94/100pts Wine Advocate
