Alessandro Rivetto Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba 2016
Garnet red color and orange tones, ethereal and pleasant scent. Austere yet smooth, strong and balanced. Elegant, with soft and sweet tannins.
Pairs well with red meat courses, game and hard or matured cheeses. Highly recommended with food enriched with truffles.
The passion for wine and the deep experience of the sector, gained in the field over long years of learning and observation, are an integral part of his personal history and are the essential features of the Alessandro Rivetto farm. It was Alessandro’s grandfather Ercole who taught him to know the vineyard and the cellar and, before him, his great-grandfather Giovanni; thus, began his love and life story for wine.
Hercules, starting from a deep bond with his territory of origin, knew how to transform his father's intuitions into a drive to explore new production possibilities. But more than anything else, it gave him the pleasure of smiling while working. From him, Alessandro, also learned this: love what you do and do what you love, bringing a smile to those he meets and those who taste his wine.
That same spirit, stubborn yet light, aware but not serious, is the same that he found in 2012 thanks to his partner Alessandro Bonelli, oenologist, who today takes care of all the technical aspects of corporate production. The same that he rediscovered in Mauro Adriano, who joined bringing his deep knowledge of international markets to the company.
They produce wines capable of exciting, telling their origin of effort and pleasure, of hard work but of propensity to share. For them, that dream is today an exciting exploration of what their vineyards can offer year after year. But it is also the challenge they face towards new interlocutors who appreciate their wines in every corner of the world.
Because, they are sure, in addition to the vines they like to cultivate the wonder, the true and pure smile that the beauty of their work can give.
