Tasting the wines of Valtellina has always been a pleasure for us, but we haven't had as much fun as this time yet. The area is obviously on the move. Many wines seemed more precise and fresher than before, and often even more complex at the same time.

The Valtellina comprises a total of about 1,000 hectares of mostly very steep, stony vineyards, enclosed by a total of 2,500 kilometres of terraced walls. At an altitude of up to 700 metres above sea level, completely independent red wines grow here from at least 90 percent Nebbiolo. As a rule, they are lighter and brighter than the Nebbiolo from the Langhe in Piedmont, but they can be just as deep and complex. Nevertheless, they are rarely revealed at first sip; especially the best Valtellina Superiore with their delicacy and elegance want to be discovered and explored.
