Located in the renowned Ginestra MGA/cru in Monforte d'Alba, the legendary estate is now headed by the 4th generation, siblings Giorgio and Marissa Conterno. Vineyards are farmed using sustainable methods. Grapes for ‘Riva del Bric’ are from south/southeast facing vines planted in 1986 and 1989, at 300-350 meters in elevation, with clay and calcareous soil. Maceration for 15-20 days, aged in large oak casks. Transparent garnet in colour, with aromas of black cherry, strawberry, licorice, black pepper, underbrush and a trace of cedar. Ripe black cherry, blackberry, cherry, red currant along with black pepper and a wisp of cedar are framed by firm tannins and fresh acidity. Tarry earth and black cherry linger on the velvety finish. A lovely, fruity Barolo from a hot and generally considered not so good vintage. 100% Nebbiolo 14% Alcohol Paolo Conterno ‘Riva del Bric’ Barolo DOCG 2009 #nebbiolo #barolo #piemontewine #sustainablewine #vinoitaliano #nebbiololover #monfortedalba #wineweview #vinorosso #instavino #italianwinelover #barololovers #instawine #winestagram #vinipiemontesi #paoloconterno #rivadelbric #vintage2009 #caravino
