Azienda Vitivinicola Rizieri has a different story from most local wineries.

This young winery does not derive from a craft handed down through generations or from family land; instead, it was born from Arturo’s life project, who decided to put himself to the test and give shape to a dream.

Conceived and realized with courage and tenacity, the company quickly made its way to the top of the local market as a sustainable producer of quality wines.

Rizieri is located in Diano d’Alba, in Sorì del Ricchino, one of the 11 communes that make up the Barolo production area, and spreads over 14 hectares, 7.5 of which are vineyards.

The remaining land consists of deciduous and mixed woodland, which contributes to the perfect microclimate for the well-being of the vineyards. These, surrounding the winery, are planted to Arneis, Dolcetto, Merlot and Barbera; in La Morra, one vineyard is planted to Nebbiolo da Barolo.

 

 

The Wines

Rizieri pays attention to the environment: the use of herbicides and pesticides in the vineyard is kept to a minimum.

The modern, partially underground cellar is equipped with a photovoltaic system to generate clean electricity and maximize energy savings.

All operational phases are followed directly by Arturo with the help of the staff formed over time, or ‘the team‘ as they like to call it. Each element of the group shares the same production philosophy and the quest for quality without compromise.

A well-worked vineyard is like a healthy body, a living, breathing, sweating body.

In the vineyard, each row is treated with the same care and attention, whether planted with Nebbiolo da Barolo or Dolcetto.

Harvesting is carried out exclusively by hand to select only healthy and perfectly ripe grapes. For each individual vineyard, the ideal harvest time is determined on the basis of the sugar content, acidity and degree of ripeness of the grapes, as well as weather conditions.
