Free Wine Tasting - Arnldo9 Riveraq Winer - 3-21-2024

On Thursday evening our special guest, Gabriele Oderda from ArnaldoRivera in Piemonte, will be showing 4 Cru Barolos.
ArnoldoRivera  Winery.

ArnaldoRivera wines are the result of a partnership between Terre del Barolo winery and a number of its growers with the aim of producing the regions best grapes and wines. The vineyards of origin are among the most prestigious on the Langhe hills. They are ultimate expression of expertise and craftsmanship, where the purity of the single varietal is at the absolute pinnacle, testifying to the unmistakable identity of Piedmont’s wines.

We will be tasting 4 Cru Barolo wines from ArnaldoRivera

Barolo Monvigliero
100% Nebbiolo Grapes
93Pts James Suckling

Made from selected grapes from 4 plots in the heart of the Monvigliero vineyard in Verduno, where the vines grow in a light, chalky clay soil on south-facing slopes at an altitude of 250 metres. After gentle fermentation, the wine is aged in large new French oak barrels for 32 months and 6 months in the bottle. The result is an extremely charming Barolo with a beautiful ruby red color, fruity aromas with floral hints and elegant underlying notes of black pepper, clove and crushed limestone, characteristic of Monvigliero’s terroir.

Barolo Ravera 
100% Nebbiolo Grapes
This Barolo comes from the Ravera Cru, a top site in Novello, sourced from six parcels at a high elevation of around 1300 feet. The nose is intensely smoky, with raspberry and strawberry aromas. The calcareous white soils produce beautiful fruit aromatics, whilst the due-south sun-facing aspect add considerable depth to the fruit and ripeness to the firm tannins. Directness of fruit is also brought forward by a degree less oak than their other Cru wines, with some smaller format wood — but none of it new. It’s sleek and stylish, a lifted wine that’s taut and spicy with fine-grained tannins. There’s tension and persistence here, with a long and elegant finish. A long and profound Barolo to approach now or cellar a good while, the Ravera is a classic

Barolo Rocche dell’ Annunziata  
100% Nebbiolo  Grapes
93Pts James Suckling  95Pts Wine Spectator
An exquisite Barolo made from grapes grown on 2 different vineyards within the Cru, facing due south at an average elevation of 1115 ft asl. The Rocche dell’Annunziata is one of the most important hills in the Barolo region. This historic Cru produces perfumed wines with finesse and a full-body that allows it to age gracefully for many years to come

Barolo Undicicomuni
100% Nebbiolo Grapes
93Pts James Suckling  93Pts Robert Parker

Barolo Undicicomuni is arguably Arnaldo Rivera’s most important wine. Spiced cedar, leather and scorched earth on the nose. The palate is wild and savory with notes of crushed raspberry, figs, cinnamon, star anise alongside velvety dusty tannins and fresh acidity. It’s stylish meaty and delicious and super uber Nebbiolo cool. Blending fruit from across the Langhe’s eleven Barolo villages, it epitomizes the quintessential values of traditional, historic Barolo. While the ArnaldoRivera single vineyard Barolos are stunning, it is the Barolo Undicicomuni that demands the winemaker’s greatest attention. He is required to blend different fruit and terroir expressions from diverse villages, just as an artist balances colors to complete his work of art. This means that the Barolo Undicicomuni is naturally Arnaldo Rivera’s most complex Barolo. A shorter ageing in wood, instead of the 32 months of each cru, allows the wine to be more accessible and suitable for early drinking. A consistently great example of Barolo

Reservations are highly suggested if you plan to stay for dinner.
