Barbaresco Nervo, Rizzi 2017
More going on here aromatically compared with this producer's basic Barbaresco 2017, a tequila/damp earth and tobacco nose. Vibrant and with bundles of zesty acidity. Firm and tight at the moment. Still has lots to go to grow into itself. 2022-2030

Nervo by name and altogether more nervous, focussed and tense in nature when compared to the other crus. There is initially an explosion of sweet fruit but then there is a real minerality that kicks in. It is very impressive but not as generous in fruit as the others - more structured, elegant and focussed.
