In the hills of Sinio, Piedmont sits the winery of Alessandro Rivetto. A man driven by a passion for wine and biodiversity, he and his partners, believe that it is essential to have a deep bond with your vineyards if you want to convey a sense of place through your wine. As the third-generation caretaker, he constantly seeks to explore new production methods to create quality wine.

Barbaresco is produced with Nebbiolo grapes grown in Piedmonte. Like its neighbour Barolo, the wine is driven by its highly tannic and acidic qualities that tend to soften over time. This wine’s aroma of pipe tobacco, forest floor, and camphor lead the nose along with a whiff of coconut. On the subtle, not very persistent palate, dusty, drying tannins accompany prune, dried cherry and a hint of vanilla

Get this wine if you are dependable, like the noble Barbaresco. Pair with some garlic short ribs and charred garden fresh carrots.
