(65% nebbiolo, 30% barbera d"Asti superiore and 5% cabernet souvignon) Bright ruby. Black fruitts, cherry, violet and sexy oakly tones on the nose. Bright and vinous, with stong flavors of blackberry and graphite firmed by sound acids. I might have picked this wine blind as cabernet. Chewy and broad, if not showing strong personality today. Finishes with substantial but ripe tannins and lingering notes of dark berries and violet. Rivetti's did not make a 2002 Pin, and beginning with the 2003 the cabernet sauvignon will be omitted from the blend.
