Don't blink, squint or clean your glasses - you read it right! Today's Six-Pack Special the 2012 Riva Leone Barbaresco, is the REAL DEAL - varietally correct, classic Barbaresco coming in at an almost too-good-to-be-true price of $16 per bottle! Featured at a recent Fine Wine Flea Market, the Riva Leone Barbaresco was - and continues to be - a big hit among our customers AND our staff. Whether you know and love Barbarescos or you are just getting familiar with these breathtaking beauties, today's offer is for you! 

Barbaresco is the graceful, lissome younger sister of Barolo, the King of Piedmont. Where Barolo is a tannic beast in its youth and needs serious cellar time, Barbaresco has softer tannins, making it more approachable and expressive at a younger age. What it does have in common with its brawny brother is a terroir-driven complexity that enables the Nebbiolo grape to express itself fully, unfolding on the palate layer by glorious layer.  The Riva Leone Barbaresco does just that; medium-bodied with supple tannins, its nose is redolent of black raspberries, with hints of tobacco and rose petals. Those raspberries take center stage on the palate as well; as the wine opens up it reveals subtle notes of cherries, savory herbs, licorice, black pepper and violets. Vibrant acidity brings all these characters into beautiful, harmonious balance - this is a KILLER bottle of wine!

Save this Barbaresco for a special occasion, but at this price, feel free to pair it with Tuesday night's meatloaf or pizza. Cheers!
