In the early 1800s the grandfather Giuseppe Rivetti, whose nickname was Pin, emigrated to Argentina from Neive. Once he returned in Piedmont he founded the family winery and brought his children up in Castagnole Lanze to be dedicated and expert winegrowers.
The choice of depicting the image of “The Rhinoceros”, on the label of our wines was determined by Rivetti’s admiration for German artist Albrecht Durer.
The woodcarving and illustration of “The Rhinoceros” was created in 1515. Arriving from India to Lisbon, this was the first rhinoceros to ever be seen in Europe. Dürer executed this woodcarving without ever actually having seen a real rhinoceros. He drew it from a description. The accuracy (except for the scales on the rhino!) of the drawing made this an inspiration for European illustrators.
This wine was dedicated to the Rivetti’s mother, Lidia.
Yellow straw with green hues, aromas of freshly cut apples, honey and cooked pears.
Mineral palate and a wonderful freshness. The hints of citrus and white flowers complete a decidedly rich profile with a polished finish.
This is a wine that can benefit from aging.
