Riva di Ponente translates to 'steep bank where the sun sets.' Grapes are sourced from a 1.4 acre vineyard block with full western exposure. This is probably our warmest block due to the afternoon sun. The soil is a black volcanic rock.  

The 2013 Riva di Ponente is dark in color and has a stunning perfume of blackberry and cassis accented by warm caramel and roasted coffee.  It has intense fruit and is rounded with lots of depth and flavor. This wine is beautifully balanced with integrated, rich tannins and a long, lingering finish. Don't be bashful to drink now, however, it will age effortlessly for a decade or more.
