Made with 100% Nebbiolo grapes from one of the highest fields in the area at more than 500 meters above sea level. A Heroic vineyard such as this one with a slope over 30%, requires a greater degree of hand labour, since the use of machinery is not always possible. Aged for one year in Slavonian oak (2500-litre casks). Elegant Nebbiolo with non-complex tannins and good minerality.

This is a dense, rich Nebbiolo with lots of savoury, ripe fruit and medium tannins. Fruit-forward, yet just the right amount of tannins to add form to the wine. Drink or hold.

Organic fruit ...The Massimo Rivetti 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo Avene is a very perfumed and floral expression with crushed flowers, wild rose and pressed lilac. Light berry nuances and grilled herb complete this lean-bodied Nebbiolo...Nebbiolo purists get great value here.
