The producer

The Rizieri winery was born from a choice of change of Arturo and Barbara Verrotti di Pianella, a common project of life, a deep respect for nature and what it produces. Rizieri is located among the beautiful hills of Diano d'Alba, in the heart of the Langhe, in an area always been considered among the most suited to viticulture, the Sörì del Ricchino. The estate extends over an area of 13 hectares, combined in a single body, 6,5 of which are vineyards and the rest deciduous and mixed woods. The cultivated varieties, implanted between 1966 and 2006 with a density of approximately 5,000 vines per hectare, are the finest native species: Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Arneis. Lying on a hillside calcareous and clayey soil, facing South and surrounded by woods, they enjoy a unique microclimate, which, with its cool and temperate influences, allow optimal maturation of the grapes. The vines are treated with the maximum respect for the environment and the work in the winery is followed with patience and perseverance in order to achieve unique wines, that reflect the intense character and the elegance of their terroir and, at the same time, evoke the passion and the continuous pursuit of quality that animate those who produce them. The heart of the winery is the 19th century farmhouse, today partly dedicated to hospitality, which years of restoration have returned to the old charm.
