Alessandro Rivetto Barbaresco 2016
It’s stuff like this.
“If you’re not buying your wine at Last Bottle, I don’t even know what you’re doing.” -- a Last Bottle client
Seriously. It’s stuff like this. 92-POINT Barbaresco from the planet-rattlingly good 2016 vintage at $24. It’s SICK! We have visited Alessandro in Alba every year the last 5 or so (Zoom this year) and are one of the lucky few in the USA to score any -- but our pricing is WAY better than the rest of the world!!!
So - if you love Barbaresco the way we do (which is, frankly, a little obsessive), if you love the Nebbiolo grape the way we do, DO ANYTHING to grab some --- trust your happy Nebbiolo-loving Napa Valley wine merchant! This juice rocks!
2016 is everywhere on this wine -- the ripeness, the crazy aromatics, the lushness and full body, while maintaining a silky, light mouthfeel...WOW! So good! Roses, lavender, tea leaf, licorice, roasting nuts, a whiff of toasted spices...very complete, very harmonious...excuse me while I open a bottle...
Many of you know this excellent producer. If not, time to get on the train. While it lasts!

“Pressed rose, wild berry, leather and a balsamic note of camphor lead the nose along with a whiff of hazelnut. It has a juicy concentration for the vintage, doling out juicy cherry extract, black raspberry and licorice, while tightly wound tannins provide the backbone. Fresh acidity brightens the rich flavors. Drink 2024-2034”
~The Wine Enthusiast
Ruby red in color, with slight garnet nuances. Intense aromas of ripe cherries with complex notes of mineral, tea leaves, and rose petals.
The tannins are rigid and mature, and it has a fresh acidity and round, feminine structure. This Barbaresco demonstrates incredible elegance with its excellent balance and long, persistent finish.
Serving temperature: 18 °C. Open the bottle at least 2 hours before pouring.
