Dedicated to the youngest daughter in the Rivetti household, this Barbera presents the variety’s youthful spontaneous, easy-drinking properties in a very special way. The decision to only use steel gives it a flavoursome taste hinting at red currants and railway cherries. Smooth, but very noticeable tannins. Very good finish.
It goes well with meat cooked in various ways, but should not be overlooked as an aperitif or for serving with pasta
dishes. It also makes a great match for some seafood dishes, such as macaroni served with mussels, rounded off by
a dusting of pecorino cheese.
