In the late 19th century Giovanni Rivetti emigrated to Argentina to seek his fortune. It was his son Giuseppe who purchased vineyards having married a local girl. And in 1977 they moved to La Spinetta and started out making Moscato d'Asti; indeed, they created the first single-vineyard example of this wine, believing it to be capable of producing something rather more interesting that was the norm at the time. In 1985 the bottled their first red wine; in 1995 they added a Barbaresco and in 2000 a Barolo. Ever keen to expand, they have subsequently bought 60 hectares in Tuscany and well as another estate - making sparkling wine - in Piedmont.

"The 2004 Barolo Campe has put on quite a bit of weight since it was bottled. This massive, powerful Barolo flows from the glass with its signature over-ripe aromatics and masses of dark fruit, tobacco, leather and spices. The tannins build impressively on the long finish. Buckle your chinstraps, this is not a wine for the timid. Ultimately, I am not sure there is enough fruit to stand up to the wine’s structural components over the long-term. In choosing to bottle riservas from his best vines (see below) Rivetti is running the risk of compromising his non-riserva bottlings. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024." Antonio Galloni
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
