This February we are delighted to welcome Rita Barbero from Rivetto to Direct Wine Shipments. Situated in Piedmont, the region is famous for its Dolcetto, Barbaresco & Barolo.
This is the 4th generation of the Rivetto family making high quality wines in this area. They aim to obtain the best expression of the vine in their terroir in a traditional way but using the knowledge of today.
“The Rivetto family winery sits more than 1,300 feet above sea level atop the Lirano hill, tucked between the communes of Serralunga d’Alba and Sinio. Rivetto’s hillside parcels of Nebbiolo surround the cellar, with the vineyards for this Barolo situated on the south/southwest slope facing Serralunga. The soils boast high concentrations of clay and limestone that yield powerful Nebbiolo.” (Wine Spectator)
“An up-and-coming star of Barolo Serralunga.” (Wine Enthusiast)
Book now for a tasting of these exceptional wines.
Please note: This will be a predominately red wine tasting.
