Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
Only after four years of aging, does a Barbaresco DOCG qualify for the appellation of 'Reserve'. Dark red in colour with brick-red hues, this wine nicely reflects its period of age. Toast, mint, red berry and leather aromas come together on this firm red. The palate offers up ripe wild cherry, grilled herb, clove and anise while assertive tannins provide the framework and leave an astringent finish. Even 11 years after the harvest this wines has so much more to give!
Vineyard Notes
Soil type: calcareous silty clay
Production Notes
Aged for 50 months, with one year in French oak and the remaining two in stainless steel tanks.
Food & Wine Pairing
Perfect with traditional Piedmontese cuisine, wild game, mushrooms or aged cheeses.
More Information
Ricossa’s loyalty goes beyond family. Ricossa’s loyalty starts with the territory. The Ricossa family were the owners of an award winning distillery at the end of the 1800’s on the outskirts of Asti in the region of Piemonte. Just as this family was the essence of local hospitality at the time, we carry on this Italian tradition today with the production of original and award winning wine.
