The Barolo “Riva Rocca” has been produced since 1995 in the village of Verduno particularly suited to cultivation of vineyards from Barolo. The exhibition of our vineyard is south-west and the age of the plants exceeds the 30 years.
The yield of the grapes in the vineyard is about one kilo per plant; while the total production is 4000 bottles per every hectare. The grapes, after being harvested, come pressed and fermented for a week with rigorous temperature control. The wine obtained is put into French oak barriques where another fermentation takes place: the malolactic fermentation. The wine is put in French oak barrels for 24 months. Follow 12 months of ageing in large French oak barrels and 12 months in the bottle.
