Nestled in the northern part of Italy, Valtellina is a small but remarkable wine-producing area with a long history and a unique character. The most famous grape variety in Valtellina is Nebbiolo, locally known as Chiavennasca. Nebbiolo is the same grape responsible for the renowned Barolo and Barbaresco wines of Piedmont. In Valtellina, it takes on a unique character due to the region's terroir and microclimate. The vineyard where the grapes come from is called Il Glicine and extends over 1 hectare in the Sassella sub-zone at 350 metres. Glicine is the Italian word for wisteria; and this colourful plant clings to the rocky crags that dominate the entire plot.

Grape variety: Nebbiolo (Chiavenasca)

Vinification: alcoholic fermentation in steel tanks at controlled temperature, ageing for 12 months in 30 HL oak casks and 500 lt oak barrels.

Tasting notes: Ruby red color with garnet reflections. Nose: Aromatic palette of rose hips, raspberry jam, watermelon, undergrowth with hints of cedar, ink and mineral brushstrokes. On the palate: fresh, tannic, persistent.

Food pairing: aged cheeses, red meat main courses, meat appetizers

Alcohol content: 14% vol.

Serving temperature: 16-18°C

Awards: Bibenda 5/5
