Guido Rivella

After decades working closely with one of the most famous names in global fine wine, Guido Rivella's own estate has emerged into the spotlight as one of Piemonte's finest producers. Having worked as Angelo Gaja's winemaker for almost 50 years, there are few better equipped to make world-class Nebbiolo, whether within the Barbaresco DOCG or as a more humble Langhe Nebbiolo - designations his former employer famously vacillated between.

When he set up his own Azienda in 2010 the pedigree of his experience was immediately apparent, especially in the quality of his single cru wines from Fausoni and Montestefano. In terms of winemaking, the estates focus is all about maintaining the health of the vines and celebrating the terroir of his vineyards as methods in the cellar proceed with with a delicate touch. As Enrico Rivella, Guido's son, puts it so eloquently (!), 'ninety-nine percent of the work is done in the vineyards. Our job in the cellar is not to f*%k it up'.

Guido Rivella Barbaresco Fausoni 2016 (3x75cl)

Vinous (93+)

The 2016 Barbaresco Fausoni, here in its debut vintage, is powerful and dense, with tons of energy and plenty of reserve. Wild cherry, spice, menthol, licorice and dried herbs gradually reveal themselves, but ultimately, the 2016 is a Barbaresco that needs time to fully come together. Its promise and potential are both evident. Stylistically, the Fausoni is a bit austere, as wines from this Neive site tend to be.

Guido Rivella Langhe Nebbiolo 2018 (6x75cl)
Inc. VAT: £253.67
2018

Guido Rivella Langhe Nebbiolo 2018 (6x75cl) Soft red fruits come on in an almost pinoté fashion but are quickly joined by classic Nebbiolo aromatics of dusty earth, wild flowers and hints of subtle herbs and spice. Benefitting from fruit usually allocated to Guido Rivella's Montestefano and Fausoni this is a Langhe Nebbiolo that soars above the pack. A standout effort from this long-time master of the variety.
