Additional Wine Information

Story
Brothers Claudio and Giancarlo Stefanoni helm this third-generation estate near Lake Garda. The massive mountain-rimmed lake creates a microclimate that’s warmer and more temperate than the rest of this northern region; grapes have been grown here since Etruscan times. The Stefanoni family has been raising French varietals such as Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon for decades, in addition to native grapes, and are part of a small cadre of producers bringing international attention to Garda. For their Ribo cuvee, the Stefanonis aged the wine in neutral oak barrels (rather than new barrels), a technique that softened Cabernet Sauvignon’s considerable tannins without imparting the vanilla, toast and tobacco notes that come from aging in new wood. A portion of Cabernet Franc adds an herbaceous note.
Sense
Aromas of olive, bell pepper and black peppercorns accent plum and blackberry fruit notes.
Savor
This Cabernet reflects the cooler latitudes of its origins with spicy black currant and herb notes.
Serve
With its juicy acidity and fine-grained tannins, the Ricchi Ribo Cabernet is a wine built for food. Juicy, rare red meats and sausages will be fantastic: the rich counterbalance of fat and proteins will smooth the tannins in the Cabernet and let the wine’s savory complexity stand out. Fresh green herbs are classic complements to Cabernet’s inherently leafy note, and the portion of Cabernet Franc makes them an especially good match here. Other accent ingredients that will harmonize beautifully include earthy vegetables that add assertive flavor but not much sweetness, such as olives, mushrooms, eggplant, fennel, onions and garlic. For pairings, look to dishes like New York Strip Steak with Creamed Spinach; Bacon-Wrapped Beef Tenderloin Roast; and Leg of Lamb with Lemon-Bay Marinade (recipes at williams-sonoma.com).
Serving Instructions
Serve a little cooler than room temperature: refrigerate the bottle for 10 minutes before serving.
