The Dante Rivetti family cantina, located in the small village Bricco di Neive (or Naevia, as the Romans called it), started bottling Barbaresco in 1959. The 1990s saw the cantina expand from their Bricco di Neive roots, buying up the cascinas of Rivetti, Micca and Costigliole d'Asti. The estate has now grown to 60 hectares, of which 15 hectares is planted to Moscato (supplemented with bought-in fruit), while 18 hectares is devoted to Nebbiolo. Bric Micca's sandy marine soils breed pretty, fruity, fragrant, sandalwood Barbarescos (planted in 1997), while the older, whiter, clay calcareous soils of Bricco di Neive, along with deeper-rooted older vines, give a more structured, quinine-spice Barbaresco. Dante and his wife Luciana have since been joined by their children Ivan, Katia and Mara in the winery.
