The roots of four generations of the Rivetti family run deep into the hills which overlook Neive from Bricco. Towards the end of the 19th century, Giuseppe Rivetti "Pinin", head of the family nicknamed "Valletta", bought three estates to share between his children. A century later, in the mid 1979's, his grandson Dante began personally running them, bottling and selling the wines produced under his own name. With the help of his wife Luciana, following his grandfather's footsteps, over the years he has expanded the estate and now cultivates 42 hectares of vineyards. The meticulously tended vineyards are kept under constant control by Dante. Pruning and thinning are the most delicate operations and it is in his vineyards, which are as tidy as the most pristine gardens, that Dante proudly spends most of his time, making them his home in which to exchange opinions and pleasantries with both friends and experts.
