Tasting Note:

Equally pretty and intense. Juicy sweet red fruit weaved elegantly through the mouth-coating body and structure. Attractive, seductive but noble and complex. Wild red berries, plums and stones abound. Persistent, haunting length. Very smart indeed. 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. Aged for 30 months in large used oak casks.
