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.

BOTTLES PRODUCED THIS VINTAGE
Grape harvested by hand in wooden crates at the beginning of September.
The grapes are harvested and put in crates, brought to the cellar and destemmed, then pressed at 0,8 bar of pressure. Fermentation is brought forth by native yeasts, and proceeds without controlling the temperature.
The wine rests at least 1 year in the tank, laying on its yeasts. It is then bottled without further stabilizations.
