Winemaker's Notes

#16 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

The wine obtained is characterized by extraordinary refinement, exceptional aging capacity and strong tannin content. Made with 100% Nebbiolo grapes.

Critical Acclaim

"Like its macerated black cherry and plum flavors, this is both sweet and intense, taking on a bittersweet chocolate richness as it powers its way to a long aftertaste. The ripeness is supported by a dense core of tannins. Best from 2014 through 2035. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,600 cases made."
95 Points

"Rivetto has delivered an impressive portfolio this year with vineyard-designate Barolos and a stellar Riserva. This Serralunga expression is ripe with generous, velvety fruit tones and loads of mineral, cola and spice. The wine shows balance and personality and definitely has the qualities needed for long aging."
