Winemaker Notes

Arnaldo Rivera is the flagship range of wines from Terre del Barolo. This Barolo comes from the Ravera Cru, a top site in Novello, sourced from six parcels at a high elevation of around 1300 feet. The nose is intensely smoky, with raspberry and strawberry aromas. The calcareous white soils produce beautiful fruit aromatics, whilst the due-south sun-facing aspect add considerable depth to the fruit and ripeness to the firm tannins. Directness of fruit is also brought forward by a degree less oak than their other Cru wines, with some smaller format wood -- but none of it new. It's sleek and stylish, a lifted wine that's taut and spicy with fine-grained tannins. There's tension and persistence here, with a long and elegant finish. A long and profound Barolo to approach now or cellar a good while, the Ravera is a classic.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 96
James Suckling
A more savory, slightly tarry, coal-smoke nose. Overall, a handsomely ripe Barolo that has a wealth of darker fruit aromas and flavors with a firm but stylishly balanced palate. Long, rich cherries abound and there’s an enduring sense of balance here. Impressive power and focus. Try from 2022.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
This red shows a wild side, from thyme and earthy sage notes to juniper and tobacco hints. Savory and dense, with beefy, astringent tannins on the finish that will need time to tame. Best from 2023 through 2035.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This opens with aromas of dark berry, dried herbs and tobacco. The full-bodied palate delivers blackberry jam, clove and espresso alongside taut but fine-grained tannins. Drink after 2022–2030.

Arnaldo Rivera Castello-Grinzane Cavour Winery Image

Arnaldo Rivera wines are the result of a partnership between Terre del Barolo winery and a number of its growers with the aim of producing the region’s best grapes and wines. The vineyards of origin are among the most prestigious on the Langhe hills. They are ultimate expression of expertise and craftsmanship, where the purity of the single varietal is at the absolute pinnacle, testifying to the unmistakable identity of Piedmont’s wines. This label is a unique, new journey through the eleven villages and native varietals in the Barolo winegrowing area, from the vineyard management, to the vinification techniques and woods used; it is truly the wines and the land they come from that speak for themselves.


Arnaldo Rivera was born on December 13th, 1919 in Castiglione Falletto, a small village at the heart of the historic Barolo winegrowing area. He was a local primary school teacher, mayor of his village for 36 years, and founder in 1958 of the Terre del Barolo winery. He lived through the hard times of the war in the front line, as well as the days of the liberation. He and his wife Ester Rinaldi were not blessed with children. Arnaldo Rivera passed away on January 10th, 1987. This project was created by the growers and the winery in honor of this great man.
