Description

The most classical interpretation of our wines. Riva Arsiglia is a rich, fresh and highly mineral white wine produced with grapes from old vines of more than 85 years of age. It presents clear notes of aromatic herbs and spices that reminds of incense, thyme and rosemary. Riva Arsiglia has an excellent potential for long ageing. It can easily age for 10/15 years, maintaining its core characteristics intact and evolving in complexity.
