Tasting Note:

Lifted, finely-scented red alpine berry fruit. Incredibly focused and bright. Salty and tangy with a pin point precision and firm, fine-grained tannin. The richness comes in waves after the taut and vital attack. Sweet but jewel-like alpine strawberry and red cherry fruit haunt the exhilarating and expansive finish. Artful, fine-tuned Barolo. Rocche Rivera is the historic name for a fabulous little-known plot within the Scarrone vineyard that is a continuation of the famous Rocche vineyard of Castiglione. Sitting above and to the right of Roagna’s Pira. The poor soils and east facing exposure make for a wine that favours elegance, freshness and minerality over power and body.
