Le Rive

Le rive is a wine that should be accompanied by faint candlelight on a laid table, or with a crackling open fire as a companion for reading. The overripe garganega and the long ageing period give it a full body that seduces the senses and a warm colour that lightly brushes your thoughts.

VINEYARD

We harvest the grapes for this wine in a small plot of about one hectare facing south and belonging to the u.g.a. Fittà. It is located at an altitude of about 260 meters and is composed of a soil of clear volcanic origin with a clayey-silty texture.
The vineyard is characterized by a steep slope (45%), the dialectal term "rive" in fact indicates a particularly steep terrain.

BEST WITH

Le Rive loves intense flavors. Excellent with roast white meat or raw meat, it goes very well even with the spiciest ethnic cuisines.
It accompanies also fatty fish and aged cheeses, and all those dishes that manage to combine sapidity and a touch of sweetness.
