Delicious Barbaresco – Dante Rivetti Bric’Micca, 2007

The Piedmonte wine cognoscenti aren’t going to like me sharing this excellent value wine. For less than S$100 you get an amazingly complex and delightfully mid-aged Barbaresco that delivers all that you wish for in this wine style. There’s cherries, there’s small red and black fruit, Chinese plums, hawthorn, hints of Yunan ham and leather; fine structured tannins and a juicy balanced long finish. My other two favourite Barbarescos are from Gaja and Bruno Giacosa – and you know how much those wines cost!

Bric’Micca is grown on sandy-limestone soils, and made in the modern-traditional style with ageing in large Slavonian oak and small French wood.
