Rivetto Nebbiolo d'Alba Lirano 2004
Well, still no calls to do anything so I walked down to Subway and got a 6" Meatball Marinara for dinner (maybe it's all that Italian wine literature) and returning home opened up a bottle of Rivetto Nebbiolo d'Alba Lirano 2004. Turned out to be a nice choice. Cherry colored with cherry and light bell pepper on the nose, good fruit, soft tannins balanced with good alcohol and a touch high acidity made it mouth watering and a nice compliment to the meatball and marinara.
