The cru of Tettineive is a tiny (2.5 hectare) plot that's situated near the cru of Cottà. Its name refers to the 450 meters elevation, which puts the vineyard "above the rooftops" of the town of Neive. More important, the cooler microclimate at this altitude mitigates the effects of the dry, hot weather that's now common during the growing season in Barbaresco. Naturally, Scarpa's infamous attention to extra aging and capture of precise detail make their 2016 Tettineive one of the greatest wines of this spectacular vintage.
