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.
