SoilLimestone and Clay
Tasting notesDeep garnet color with a brick rim leads to high aromas of cherry, maple, spice and anise. The palate is firm yet full and balanced with intense and lingering flavors that change savory.
Food pairingsTruffles pair classically well with this Piedmont favorite, but it also pleases with pork roast or veal ossobuco as well as most savory dishes.
Riva Leone was a man of unique character and personality who was an ambassador for the special wines of the Langhe all throughout Europe in the early 20th Century. His legacy lives on in our wines which uphold the winemaking traditions of Piedmont for a new generation of wine lovers across the world.
