Barbera d’Asti DOCG Sup. Cunsej 2016 Bel Sit

BEL SIT

The Bel Sit company was founded in 1870 and for 6 generations belonged to the Rivella family.
From the spring of the year 2019 it belongs to Andrea and Gianpiero Scavino that have revealed the property but also the passion and production techniques.
Andrea and Gianpiero have been producers since 1996 and that is since they inherited the quota of the father Giancarlo of the agricultural society “I Vignaioli di Santo Stefano”, historic company for the production of Moscato d’Asti in the municipality of S Stefano Belbo.

The Bel Sit company is located halfway up a shaped hill of amphitheater exposed to South-West, than from the municipality of Castagnole delle Lanze overlooking the Langhe.

In this company in the 60s, the production of the Barbera that bore the name was born of the common “Barbera di Castagnole delle Lanze”.
The perfect exposure allows for complete maturation and consequently particularly complex but still fine and elegant wines.

philosophy of production…

“Bel Sit” is located halfway up a natural amphitheatre facing south-west in the little town of Castagnole Lanze, which overlooks the Langhe hills. Atop the hill on a clear day, you can see the framework of mountains that protect it.

Our philosophy is one of restraint and pursuit of the purest expression of our terroir. Ezio’s approach to work in the cellar is definitely “minimalist” in nature, the primary technological features dedicated to temperature control.  This works in tandem with the natural phenomena that occur in wine to preserve the quality conferred by the grapes. The traditional production cycle does not include any type of filtration and clarification, rather a series of decantations that naturally clarify the wine. The wines of “Bel Sit” offer a glimpse into the memories of Ezio Rivella’s youth. They tell a story, one of vigor and accomplishment, and of a long family history in a land perfectly tailored to create Barbera wines.
