On the wine label is drawn rhino. This is a reproduction of a famous painting and engraving by the German artist Albrecht Dürer. Although the true story of a rhinoceros company La Spinetta not. But, of course, is the history of this painting, for which she so loved the producer Giorgio Rivetti. This figure tells about the events of the distant 1515. Rhino was presented to the Governor of the Indian king of Portugal, and, apparently, for fun - staged a fight between an elephant and a strange animals, which had never before seen in Europe. We can assume that the elephant ran and won the rhino. Description rhino soon reached Germany, and the artist Durer, presumably with sketches, without even seeing this animal, prepared drawing and woodcut. He portrayed so convincingly rhino and bizarre that for the next 300 years, European illustrators borrowed elements of his work, despite the fact that they already had the opportunity to see real live rhinos.
Rivetti family history begins with the 1890s, when the father - Giovanni Rivetti - Piedmont left and moved to Argentina. Like many Italians of that time, he cherished the hope to get rich and return home rich and powerful man, and make wine at home. However, he failed to realize his dream, but he did it for his son Giuseppe, nicknamed Pin. When Ping married Lydia, they acquired vineyards and began to engage in winemaking. In 1977, the family of the newlyweds settled in Spinetta (at the top of the hill) in Castagnole Lanze. It is in the heart of Moscato, which is traditionally made quite easy and simple dessert wine. But the couple Rivetti felt that Moscato has great potential and you can produce great wines - to prove they have created Moscato Bricco Quaglia and Biancospino. And that was only the beginning of future victories in the field of wine-making company La Spinetta (the phrase "La Spinetta" means "top of the hill"). Soon came the first red wine company - Barbera Cà di Pian, that was the beginning of the creation of the great red wines, which began to follow one after the other. 1989 saw the creation of red blend, created in honor of his father Rivetti, and in 1995 they started to make their first Barbaresco Gallina. 1996 and 1997 saw the release of Barbarescos Starderi, Barbera d'Alba Gallina and Barbaresco Valeirano.
And in 1998 debuted wine Barbera d'Asti Superiore. In 2000, the company acquired vineyards in Grinzane Cavour and built a modern cellar. In 2001, ownership of La Spinetta expanded and moved beyond Piedmont, in connection with the acquisition of 65 hectares of vineyards in Tuscany, between Pisa and Volterra. These territories were purchased in order to produce wines made from 100% Sangiovese. In 2003, opened a second winery, and in 2007, when the company celebrated its thirtieth anniversary, opened the third winery!
