Wine Information

About the wine

The Nebbiolo grape is known for its high tannins and high acidity. When it’s treated to the right conditions and winemaker you can get a fantastically balanced red wine that’s both expressive and fresh, with great potential for ageing. This wine spends a luxurious 24 months in oak barrels – and a further 12 in bottles – which perfectly smoothens its tannins and invites notes of vanilla and spice.

 

About the producer

25 hectares of vines up to 75 years old are managed by the Rivetti family who have been growing grapes and producing wines in Piedmont for five generations. Their production is organic, having eliminated herbicide and pesticide use in 2009 – making them both trailblazers for modern production and a testament to the Italian wine tradition.

 

About the region

Barolo DOCG can be found in northwest Italy in the Alpine foothills. Its raised altitudes and limestone-rich soils act as a vital cooling influence to offset the moderate continental climate. This gives the vines a long growing season that allows interesting, complex aromas such as rose and lavender to develop in the Nebbiolo grapes
