The Alessandro Rivetto winery is made of a triangle in which from each of the three ends comes a knowledge, that converges to the center in a complete and smart business.
Three men, three friends, three professionals from different sectors and with different interests, sharing a love for wine.
At the top Alessandro Rivetto, with in his hands a company inherited from the family and learned to love thanks to his grandfather Ercole, who shared with him the philosophy of working in the vineyard with a smile on his face.
The one who supervises the choices in the cellar is Alessandro Bonelli, a childhood friend and professional winemaker, who since 2012 has teamed up with Rivetto to join forces and give life to special wines.
The latest arrival is Mauro Adriano, the sales manager, also an old friend. After 20 years of experience in the fashion world that allowed him to know and travel the world, he joined the team closing the circle with excellent business skills.
It would be wrong to consider a single location for this company, which defines itself as a dynamic winery and which consistently has several locations.
The headquarters is today in La Morra, where Alessandro has created kind of a “wine loft“. Here is where they age the precious Barolo, but also where they welcome guests and host the tastings, in a space that is modern and comfortable but in perfect harmony with the landscape.
The remaining vineyards are cultivated between Alba and Serralunga, in lands that have been carefully chosen to bring out the best of each vine.
Rivetto’s production is divided into two lines: the wines by Alessandro Rivetto, excellence of the Langa area and pride of the winery, and the 3 “Pola” of Monferrato, with a different label and expression of a different territory.
Barolo is undoubtedly the “prince” of the company, grown between La Morra and Serralunga, but the production is varied and each grape is left to express itself as much as possible: Arneis, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo, Barbera, Barbaresco, Moscato and Nascetta compete for the appreciation of the guests, each proud and characteristic.
The guided tasting, which can accommodate up to 16 people at a time, is held in the aging cellar of La Morra, and can either be:
- Standard tasting € 10 per person, with a taste of the 4 autoctonous vines of the Langhe (Arneis, Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo) for a general knowledge of local wine
- Premium tasting € 20 per person, with a taste of 4 wines in a journey of knowledge of the nuances of Barolo and Barbaresco
Both solutions will be accompanied by platters of cheeses and cold cuts, skilfully combined with wines.
There are two different types of tasting:
STANDARD TASTING 10 €
This formula focuses on the knowledge of the 4 main autoctonous vines of the Langhe, an authentic reflection of the characteristics and potential of the territory: Arneis, Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo.
PREMIUM TASTING 20 €
The tasting includes 4 tastings that will take you on a journey through the different shades of Barolo and Barbaresco able to show you the peculiarities of the different terroirs from which we obtain our most prestigious labels.
The price of the tasting will be deducted from the eventual purchase.
Both solutions will be accompanied by local meats and cheeses with constant attention to creating pleasing combinations of food and wine.
