The RIZZI company was founded on the ancient nineteenth-century family farms in 1974 by Ernesto Dellapiana. Over the years he has committed himself to a continuous expansion and improvement of both quantity and quality of the company (and its products), making it become, with its 40 hectares of vineyards, one of the largest, most interesting and certainly important realities in the area of Barbaresco. This commitment has also been demonstrated in the oenological field, with the continuous search for an increasingly higher quality product, trying to reconcile the most innovative processing techniques and tools with the most classic Langa tradition.
Since 2004, the owner's work has been joined by that of Jole and Enrico Dellapiana, Ernesto's sons, who have entered the company's activities full time.
The vineyards of the Rizzi winery extend for approximately 40 hectares of which approximately 18 hectares are Nebbiolo from Barbaresco. The remaining part is divided into Dolcetto, Barbera, Moscato, Freisa, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Nebbiolo vineyards are located in four large wine-growing areas of Barbaresco, whose altitude varies between 200 and 430 m above sea level
The crus are Rizzi (within which we find the Vigna Boito), Nervo, Pajorè, Manzola, Giacone, and Bricco di Neive. To these company vineyards located in Treiso and Neive, we must add the owned vineyards in NEVIGLIE, a municipality bordering Treiso, an area suited to the production of Moscato d'Asti.
