Langhe Nebbiolo

Denominazione di Origine Controllata
Only Nebbiolo grapes grown on the Bricco di Neive hill are used in making this wine. It matures for 12 months in 30-hl Slavonian oak casks, with the precise aim of preserving an aromatic core that shows on the nose in sensations of plum, dark berries and sweet spices. Mouthfilling, fruity and tight.

Elegant tannins. For those who love tradition, it goes well with Langa dishes such as thinly-cut tajarin pasta with a rabbit sauce. For the more adventurous it makes a good pairing with scorpion fish poached in a flavourful broth. More cosmopolitan gourmets will find it makes a perfect match for many Mexican dishes.

Arneis Briccodoro

Denominazione di Origine Controllata
This label is made from grapes grown on a recentlyplanted new vineyard extending the estate in Località Rivetti. Its young character is deliberately maintained in the vinification through the use of the less aromatically intrusive steel.

The freshness resulting from its time sur lie conjures up lime tree, citrus fruit (grapefruit and lime), and fresh aromatic herbs.

Pairing it with many seafood dishes comes naturally, especially steamed mantis shrimps.
Less obvious, but not necessarily any less satisfying, is to match it with braided buffalo mozzarella.

About us

Company details

Family and land. The roots of plants, and of people.

Those of the noble Roman Naevia family that gave its name to the small town of Neive, but also of the Rivetti family, which has been living and working in Neive since the mid-1800s. First ‘Pinin’, then Dante.

The latter has been running the family estate since the second half of the 1970s, when it first took on the name of Dante Rivetti.

For this Bricco di Neive winery, a label is not simply a question of what name to put on the bottle. It is a sense of duty to give full expression to the classic varieties of Piedmont through its wines.

Wines made from grapes that are at home here, and no more so than for those of the Rivettis when you consider that they grow right alongside the very farmhouse where the family lives.

For the Dante Rivetti cellar, living wine does not just mean making it.
