Tasting Notes

The wine Barbaresco Riserva Boito is born from the best grapes produced in the vineyard Boito, which is in the upper part of the Crü Rizzi. The exposition of this vineyard is south, south-west and just before the Cascina Rizzi, where Rizzi winery is located, the slope turns to face southwards. The soil composition of this vineyard is characterized by white marl clayey- calcareous. It is a deep soil with a clay vein that cuts within the whole hill, and that gives this wine great elegance, tannic structure, inimitable perfumes and great longevity.

Full, brilliant red in color. It has clean-cut perfumes with notes of rose and a very crisp fruit, fine tobacco and mint, plus a slight whiff of licorice, black pepper and cloves. Its taste is full and mellow, very balanced, with a nice and rich tannic structure. It's a Barbaresco austere, masculine, muscular; a Barbaresco intended for long aging, and that will give great emotions, over the years.
