- About The Producer
The roots of four generations of the Rivetti family run deep into the hills that overlook Neive from Bricco, Cuneo. Towards the end of the 19th century, Giuseppe Rivetti "Pinin", head of the family, bought three estates to share among his children. A century later, in the mid 1979's, his grandson Dante began personally running the winery, bottling and selling the wines produced under his own name. Every year, Dante Rivetti continues to achieve the highest international accolades for their exceptional Barbaresco.
