Natalie's Score: 91/100

Barolos: you love them or leave them. This tends to be a polarizing Italian red wine. The Barolo Riva del Bric offers a great way to get familiar with this style of wine as it's very well-made. Dark fruit, violets, truffles and smoke. Decant 2 hours.

Reviews and Ratings

Produced by ViƱa Marty, the 2009 vintage is smooth yet concentrated. Very juicy with mouth-watering acidity. The Barolo Riva del Bric is a good starting place for trying Barolo with its smooth tannins and attractively ripe fruit - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
