An act of love, of freedom, of grower pride: introduced with the 2013 vintage, the ArnaldoRivera wines are the result of an official protocol drawn up between the winery and a number of its grower partners designed to produce premium quality grapes.
The vineyards of origin are among the most prestigious in the area of the Langhe. A resource that is encapsulated in this ultimate expression of know-how and craftsmanship, where the purity of the single varietal is the absolute pinnacle.
Keeping alive the tradition of a historic Barolo-producing winery, the ArnaldoRivera brand name is how the grower families have chosen to say thank you to their inspiration, sixty years after the founding of the Cooperative.
In a masterpiece of generosity and intuition - qualities which have always been inborn in the people of these hills - the “teacher” Arnaldo Rivera managed to unite many families in a challenge with a common purpose: to produce a great wine that would add value to their community and the local area.
A unique wine; a true expression of each vintage.Top quality clusters tended with care in the best positions on our vineyards in the eleven villages (“undici comuni”, hence the name) in the Barolo growing area.
The circular logo on the label shows,in different colors,the areas of the eleven villages.
