This is the 2016 Rizzi Barbaresco Nebbiolo from Tresio, Italy.

On the nose is cherry, fennel, licorice, violets, clay pot and earth.

On the palate is sour cherry, cranberry, spice, licorice, roses, graphite and dried soil.

This wine medium to full bodied with medium+acidity and medium+ fine tannins that leads to a ling red fruit licorice finish. I hope everyone's year is starting out good. Please keep positive thoughts and stay healthy and safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

The wine tonight on the eve of our 4th of July, our Independence Day, I have opened the 2016 Rizzi Barbaresco Azendia Vitivinicola from Treiso, Italy.

On the nose there is is cherry, raspberry, strawberry, licorice, herbs, dried roses, light oak and earth.

The palate gives me cherry, raspberry, pomegranate, licorice, tar, spices, herbs, dried roses and dry dusty soil.

This wine is medium to full bodied smooth mouthfeel with medium to medium + acidity and high mouth coating astringent sandpaper tannins that gives you long red fruit earthy finish. I continue to wish everyone a enjoyable holiday weekend, please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Seems like Rizzi did pretty well in 2016. Need to buy more!

Very good Barbaresco. Typical style for this grape and region. Light, mild fruits, easy drinking, would buy again. $33 at smyrna beverage warehouse.

Quite fruity with strawberry and raspberries hitting immediately on the nose. Medium tannins and quite acidity on the palate. Agreed with several other reviewers, this is a young vintage that needs maturity to enjoy.
