Az. Ag. Rivetti Massimo

Rivetti Massimo in Nieve

This luscious Moscato is made at the Rivetti Massimo winery, located in Nieve.  The grapes, grown on one of three vineyards owned by the winery,  are from the hills of lower Langa in the heart of Piedmont.  The Massimo Rivetti winery has about 50 acres of planted vineyards -- Garassino in Mango, La Palazzina in Alba and the oldest with vines up to 50 years old, Froi in Nieve.  It is from this prime vineyard we get this golden yellow "Drink of the Gods".


Tasting Notes:  Unctuously sweet, delightfully fizzy, this wonderful Moscato is made from partially fermented juice, making the wine big, full and rich in body.
