The strongest of the barrels and only made in the finest vintages. Leon is aged 5 years in oak and then in bottle before sold. Leather, red fruit, balsamic notes, and hints of oak. Tremendous Barolo.
Enrico Rivetto can talk to anyone in the world about his wines. A farmer at heart, he has slowly and strategically stitched together a lush quilt of an estate atop the Lirano hill near the town of Serralunga.
After 5 years of aging, Barolo may crown itself with the title of “Reserve”. This Barolo Riserva is selected from the barrels with the greatest potential for aging and it is at its best after 15-20 years.
Pairs well with beef, pasta, lamb, deer, and venison.
