RIVETTO Zio Nando 2011

Zio Nando comes from a single vineyard just down from the winery at 365m elevation. With maturation in three- and four-year-old French oak barriques as well as 3000 litre Slavonian oak casks, it adds toast, baking spice and mocha notes to its richly textured dark cherry fruit. A serious cellaring proposition and a natural for grilled meat dishes and richly sauced pasta.

Winery RIVETTO

The Rivetto family wine business began in 1902 when Giovanni Rivetto opened a wine store in Asti. Twenty years later he moved to Alba and then in 1938 acquired Tenuta Loirano in Serralunga d’Alba. A new winery was built by third generation Sergio Rivetto in 1970 and today the winery is in the hands of the fourth generation, Enrico Rivetto.

The winemaking philosophy is one of minimum intervention and maximum respect for the vineyard. No synthetic chemicals are used in the vineyards and the vine rows are planted with native grasses and legumes to keep the soil vital and reduce compaction.

Under Enrico’s leadership, Rivetto is going from strength to strength. The wine quality across the board is excellent and a No. 16 in the Wine Spectator Top 100 for the 2006 Barolo is testament to that.

From the vineyards surrounding the Loirano hill, Rivetto produces several crus of Barolo and Barbera d’Alba, along with Dolcetto and the exciting renascent native white, Nascetta. Rounding out the portfolio is a rare Barolo Chinato and a Grappa di Nebbiolo da Barolo.
