Tasting Note:

Exquisitely detailed, crisp ripe red berry fruits with overtones of sap and minerals. Layered and lifted with a fine-chiselled tannic backbone providing crunch and definition. Beautifully composed and balanced, the seductive, mineral-soaked fruit covers the structure well. 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 of sandy limestone with some clay, as well as 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.
