The wine world has been blown away by Giorgio Rivetti's magic touch with Moscato, Barbera, Nebbiolo, and more recently, Sangiovese, Colorino, Vermentino, and Sangiovese Rosé. Year after year, he creates approachable yet age-worthy wines that capture the interest of both wine experts and consumers due to their unmatched lushness, concentration, aromatics, and length. Giorgio made a swift journey from respected Barbaresco and Barolo vigneron in the 1970s to Moscato producer in the present.
“One of Italy’s most fashionable winemakers/proprietors, Giorgio Rivetti displays a masterful touch whether he is making Barbera, Moscato d’Asti, or his proprietary red wine Pin.” – Robert Parker, Jr.
“Giorgio Rivetti, owner and winemaker of La Spinetta in Barbaresco, has become one of the leading forces in Piedmont. He’s making exciting ripe, fruit-forward Nebbiolos that would give many highly rated New World wines a run for their money. Now he’s making waves in Barolo….Rivetti is first and foremost a winemaker—one of the best and most innovative winemakers in Piedmont today. But he is also in tune with today’s consumer, whom he believes shares his preference for wines that are more approachable on release.” — The Wine Spectator
