Barbaresco Riserva Ronchi

Among the Barbaresco parcels that are produced in the “Menzione Geografica, Ronchi”, a careful selection in the cellar identifies the most precious wine only to be produced in the best vintages, when the wine has a wonderful structure and an innate ability to withstand time in bottle. It is only then, when the Barbaresco “Ronchi” becomes a “Riserva”.
