A blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera from some of Giorgio Rivetti's better vineyards, the 2004 Pin was sleek, elegant and very well made. Dark but balanced aromas of sweet fruit and a smoky/ animal note that I get from well made barberas. The palate was ripe, soft and round, with a nice mix of earth, perfume and a salty mineral note on the finish. More open and generous than I expected. Tasty.
