Barolo Leon Riserva

In Piedmont, on the hills between Serralunga d’Alba and Sinio, Enrico Rivetto runs his 15 hectares estate with a vision: a production using only biodynamic techniques, viticulture in harmony with nature, land and man, resulting in a vineyard that is in balance with the entire ecosystem. The passion for wine has been in the family for 4 generations.
