Description

Musso’s Barbaresco Rio Sordo is a single vineyard Barbaresco that fully expresses the excellent character of the Rio Sordo hill. Made from 100% Nebbiolo harvested from vines between 250-300 meters above sea level. The grapes, which are hand-harvested, are left to macerate for 18-20 days. Then the wine is aged in large oak barrels for one year, before being moved to smaller oak barrels for 6 months. Once it is bottled it is again let to refine for 7-8 months in the bottle before being released.

Tasting Notes

The Barbaresco Rio Sordo is a unique expression of Barbaresco with a rich garnet colour, with a primary red fruit aroma of plums and dark cherry, there is a strong dried apricot element, and spicy edges of pink pepper, cinnamon, and tobacco. It is a warm and persistent wine.

Food Pairing

This elegant wine deserves a fine pairing, it goes well with grilled or smoked meats, tomato-based, rich pasta dishes and aged cheeses.
