Overview

This range of wines celebrates both the natural beauty of the King Valley and the vibrancy and innovation of this emerging wine region. Bella Riva in Italian means beautiful riverbank - a fitting description for the spectacular location of De Bortoli’s picturesque vineyards on 3.5 kms of King River frontage.

If you're looking for a delicious red wine to pair with a chargrilled rib-eye steak or rich bolognese, you can't go past this rustic Italian-style Sangiovese. With earthy aromas and a savoury flavour that conjures up juicy cherries and dark chocolate, this drop is very drinkable indeed.

Expert Reviews

Sangiovese from this vineyard has come along leaps and bounds. This is a savoury, peanutty release with leaf and cherry notes doing most of the talking. What it lacks in body it makes up for in personality.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

De Bortoli Wines is a third generation family wine company established by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. The couple emigrated to Australia from Northern Italy, from mountain villages at the foothills of the Italian Alps, near the historic town of Asolo.

Their son, the energetic and dynamic Deen De Bortoli, (b 1936 – d 2003) expanded and consolidated the business created by his parents. Deen's children established De Bortoli's reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One and the Yarra Valley wines.

Italian family values passed down from Vittorio remain core values, there is a culture of hard work, generosity of spirit and of sharing good food, good wine and good times with family and friends.
