Production information

Producer: Riva Leone

Produced and bottled in a state of the art winery in Priocco, Riva Leone is a fantastic example of modern Italian winemaking at its best.

The name Riva Leone is taken from the name of a wine merchant from Alba in Northern Italy, who at the beginning of 20th century decided to bottle the wine that he sold on tap to his clients.  The house portrayed in the label shows his shop in the countryside of Alba.

Production note

20 to 40 year old vines are harvested by hand at 6 to 8t/ha usually in mid-October. The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed before being fermented in a mixture of wooden, cement and stainless steel casks for 8 to 12 days with daily pump overs and delestage. The wine is then aged for a further 24 months in a mixture of old and new French oak barrels. Light filtration before bottling.
