Barbera d’Asti DOCG Sup. Sichivej 2016 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.


One of the great attributes of the Barbera grape is its versatility.
From this grape variety you can create equally intriguing whites, rosès, medium bodied reds and complex, full bodied wines able to compete with the finest in the world.

 The Barbera d’Asti DOCG Superiore Sichivej is a great example of such a Barbera. Creating this wine requires intense effort, a painstaking labor of love starting in the vineyards and ending in the bottle. The grapes are harvested manually, with a delicate pressing to obtain the purest juice. Fermentation occurs at 30°C temperature with selected yeasts followed by a rather long extraction. (Remontage) is performed every 7 days, until the sugars are exhausted and alcoholic fermentation is complete. The malolactic fermentation starts just after and is accomplished at 20°C. Following several stages of decanting for clarification, the wine is aged in small 300 liter and utilizes French oak barriques produced in Italy with a particular toasting procedure and texture. The wine is aged in barrique for 9 months and bottled at the beginning of spring without any filtration in order to preserve its concentration and structure.

Colour: Intense ruby red with light garnet reflections

Bouquet: Ripe and seductive, with spices from the barrel that give an attractive richness to the nose.

Taste: Ripe forest fruit, velvety on the palate and full of character.

Food Pairings: The body, richness, and complexity of this wine pairs well with bold flavors such as grilled meats, rich pasta dishes, and flavorful cheese.

Serving Temperature: 18-20°C
